This ‘Collapsed’ Vessel in Black and White was thrown and deliberately “collapsed”! The base is thrown and altered and the top section is expertly woven in black and white man-made paper coil, and black and white hemp thread to reflect the satin white glazed section.
This vessel is handmade and unique.
Authentic, handmade ceramic vessels can show some variation in colour, shape and texture from piece to piece. Artistic authenticity is our goal rather than identical mechanical reproductions.
