    • ART INFO

      Powerful rhythmic patterns emanate from this simple yet beautiful form. Strong sculptural relief on the outside is contrasted with a silky smooth satin green/gray glaze on the interior. Balance is carefully achieved to create a graceful yet solid posture. The vessel is created using an "earth-forming" technique, a one-off casting method developed by the artist. A dis-solvable "form work" is carved from silt and filled with liquid clay. Over a period of weeks, the silt & clay matrix dries and disintegrates, allowing the hardened clay within to be excavated. Glazed and fired with satin matte glaze and colored terra sigillata. The glaze is food safe.Due to the nature of this process, slight variations occur between each composition. Panels are ready to hang; a full-sized paper pattern is included for easy and accurate installation. Suitable for indoor or outdoor display.
