Lot No. :SF-210511
Artist:Steven Forbes-deSoule *
Overview:Contemporary art. Raku Pottery, size 7”H x 9”W. This beautiful raku pottery vessel was thrown on the pottery wheel and stretched horizontally to create the ovoid shape. It was trimmed upside down on the wheel when the surface was leather hard. After bisque firing it was raku fired twice and allowed to cool in between firings. I love how the lines and spots from the first raku firing create a subtle pattern on the final surface.
Status:For Sale (Item is customizable)
