Title: Black & White Vase with Handbuilt Neck

Year of Creation: 2006

Glaze: Black matte glaze

Clay Body: Porcelain

Dimensions: Height 11.75 inches, Width 6.5 inches

Artist's Statement: In this vase form, I am combining the crisp symmetry of the thrown body with gestural fabric like quality of the neck. The contrast of these two aspects is connected and enhanced by the biomorphic black shapes of the poured glaze on the white porcelain surface.

The full body and organic neck give a sense of swelling and a skin like texture that the invites the viewer to make a tactile and visual connection.
