ahmedabad/green gutter vase

green gutter vase green gutter vase

a wheel thrown base and a coiled and paddled body
are completed by a grilled opening in this piece.
it is made from an iron-rich czech stoneware clay
with several layers of green slip brushed on in greenware state.
it underwent several firings, polishing and treatment with iron ore.
only the inside is glazed

a blend of geometric contemporary with archaic attributes
makes this cantilevered vessel rebellious.
it attracted the desire of a photographer and she purchased it.
after many attempts to put it to use, the endeavor was abandoned
and the piece left alone
