Powerful rhythmic patterns emanate from this simple yet beautiful form. Strong sculptural relief on the outside is contrasted with a silky smooth satin gold 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.
