This large vessel was hand thrown in a dark speckled clay which transforms the sage green glaze to a rich turquoise colour. Turquoise and tan paper string has been woven into a sleeve which holds the treated driftwood attachment. Richly coloured turquoise beads add the final touch.
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.
