Description
Slab base and coil built stoneware form of elliptical shape, with fuller proportions in the centre and narrowing at the edges to softly sculptured curves. The work is executed in high fired stoneware clay and patinated with copper matt glazes. These are applied in a brushed and sprayed manner in colours of copper green, aqua, rust and manganese which are suggestive of a northern landscape.
