Oyster and Pearl
White clay, thrown, cut, saggar fired. Slab smoke fired
5 x 22.5 x 14"
From a series of open oval bowls, this piece finds its footing on a ripple textured, slab smoked to evoke sand. Fired in Wellfleet, the oyster connection is natural. The saggar fired surface reminicent of nacre. The "pearl" is a thrown closed form with pieces inside that give it sound when handled.
