This large vessel is hand-thrown and altered and glazed in a rich black tenmoku. Recycled denim has been woven through the pierced holes to create a ‘crown’ that mirrors the underlying shape.
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.
