Lively Lidded Vessel, ivory glaze, dark corrosion.
& quot; & quot;
Course & quot; 10-3/ 4 & quot; high
x 5 & quot; wide stoneware, oxides, high fire lusters
Tossed on the pottery wheel and changed through faceting, pulling and twisting, this piece reminds me of a newly carved course in snow or white sand. The glaze is a butter soft ivory, tan on sharper edges. The mouth of the vessel I’ve repainted with a red iron oxide, which fires to a metallic dark dark brown. The ball on top is made from white porcelain, with a clear crackled glaze.
This is part of my Dynamic Lidded Vessel series. The series embodies motion, balance and caricature. Feeling my way through the shapes I explore the exaggerated, circus-like nature of toys, odd characters, flora, animals and anything that shows both poise and precariousness.
When I start deal with a piece I have a loose concept in mind, however am also at the mercy of the clay, temperature level and humidity. Work begins on the wheel and the base and the top are then altered through pulling, sculpting, curving, trimming. The lids are inverted and I pull longest possible spires from the offered clay till it will pull no more. That becomes my & quot; & quot; canvas & quot; for the active shapes I planning to produce. Each piece moves through interim phases before it can hold the final gesture. I have little windows of chance where the clay is malleable enough and at the very same time company enough. It comes together very well when rhythm, balance and timing cooperate.
SHIPPING: I base the US shipping on USPS Priority Mail to the East Coastline (I’m on the West Coast). I refund the distinction in between the published shipping and actual shipping. I can ship internationally as well. Please convo me first and I’ll enjoy to set that up.Можно purchase on Etsy for barbdunshee
