Ceramic Vessel “Nests” Series - Blue
This ceramic vessel is part of the “Nests” series. “Nests” are enclosed thrown forms which represent shelters and protection. They were created on the pottery wheel with black clay and trimmed before a small thrown cylinder was attached. Smooth and textured blue stoneware glaze was applied onto the deep iron black clay resulting a highly expressive texture. This decorative ceramic vessel can be used as vase if desired. It was fired in an electric kiln to 1280°C.
In this work, Magda has developed a new range of glazes that offer more expressive rocky textures. The finish is matt and the colors are rich, while the black clay contrasts smoothly underneath. Inspiration is drawn from many disparate sources including natural landscape, found objects, history and human behavior.
