Title: Wood Fired Slab Built Vase

Year of Creation: 2012

Glaze: Natural wood ash from the firing

Clay Body: Stoneware

Dimensions: Height 16 inches, Width 3.5 inches

Artist's Statement: This vase is slab built with a rippled, creased and textured neck contrasting with the planar body. The naturalistic surface decoration is a place for the flow of ash to accumulate during the firing process. The gestural shape of the neck, the rhythmic flow of the impressed decoration and the random effect of the wood ash coalesce into a natural and spontaneous merging of form, surface and firing.
