Vessel

This collection is rooted in texture and organic shape. I began each piece with a simple pinch-pot form, then added bits of clay to the inside and outside of the pots to begin the move upward. This was a lesson in subconscious making, letting the clay dictate the direction my pots moved.  I used various bits of nature such as bark, rocks, seeds, and my own hands to create the surface. The pieces were left unglazed and fired in a smokeless wood fired kiln for around 16 hours. For those long hours I fed the fire that would solidify my pieces which solidified my connection to them and the process of making.
