Ceramic Vessel “Story Beneath” series - Blue
This ceramic vessel is part of the “Story Beneath” series. Was thrown on the pottery wheel with black clay, altered to an oval shape and assembled. Coloured slip was then applied sporadically on the surface when the pot was still leather hard. The coloured slip patch was blend in with the textured glaze and created a new dialogue, a new story that lies beneath. It was fired in an electric kiln to 1280°C. This decorative ceramic vessel can be used as a vase if desired.
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.
