Stoneware

About this project

PORUS / black stoneware - an exploration in the slight subversion of function: objects with curiously shaped and placed handles and spouts invoke the possibility of function and usage whilst defying utility. Rough, volcanic bottle forms suggest modernity in shape yet infer a mysterious archaeological past. Visible tool marks, surface chattering, fissures, the clay body’s pyroplasticity and imperfections all speak of these objects’ journey through the making process. Fired to 1260C, unglazed.
