Jara Vessel

by Maria Paola Piras

€ 430 / € 950

Maria Paola studies ancient forms of vessels found throughout the island and then reinterprets them - choosing a specific mix of clays for each form. 

 

Each shape is painstakingly created by hand using the coil technique and then baked in a wood-fired clay oven. Rather than using glazes, she either stone polishes her pieces (creating a mystical, almost metallic finish) or treats them with a series of waxes. 

The Jara Vessel is inspired by a drawing of ceramics fragments found in prehistoric settlements.

Materials:

Wood-fired mixed clay with stone-polished finish

Small W 21 cm - D 16,5 cm - H 16,5 cm

Large W 36 cm - D 28 cm - H 33 cm
