Taurus Bowl

by Maria Paola Piras

€ 210

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.

Taurus Bowl is inspired by the large presence of anthropomorphic decorations in prehistoric Sardinian ceramics.

Materials:

Wood-fired mixed clay, stone-polished with beeswax finish

Width 13 cm - Depth 20 cm - Height 8,5 cm
