Grounded Vessel - deep dish
Craggy, cratery, weather-beaten. This ceramic sculpture is crafted from a grainy stoneware clay with recycled glaze 'inclusions' which burst through the surface and form pits, bubbles and craters. Matt turquoise, blue and creamy-white glazes with a touch of pinkypurple may bring to mind stormy seas crashing against layered rock with the merest hint of a calmer sunset on the horizon. The outer surface is glazed in a matt mossy blue, it stands on three little 'feet' and is finished with a bronze pigment to accentuates the torn edges.
PLEASE NOTE THIS IS A SCULPTURE NOT A FUNCTIONAL PIECE. DUE TO THE SPECIAL NATURE OF THE GLAZE COMBINATIONS USED IT WILL, BY DESIGN, HAVE ROUGH, PITTED AREAS AND SHOULD BE HANDLED WITH CARE. THIS PIECE IS NOT SUITABLE FOR FOOD USE.
