Catalina Coastal Bloom Wall Form

600.00

This one of a kind creamy white coastal coral and floral inspired wall form is inspired by the various patterns textures and movement discovered along the shore during Tavill's seaside travels. Its texture is handmade through a series of creative processes in the artist's ceramic studio. The artist creates the form and later carves deeply and pulls and manipulates the clay to create the layers. Porcelain slip is added to create a white skin and then she hand textures the surface with various tools. Her signature "JT" stamp is impressed into the undercut foot upon completion during the  greenware stage. This foot allows the form to be hung on one secure angled nail or screw flush against the wall. The piece is heavy in weight due to the necessity for thickness to achieve such texture. The first firing secures the carving and texture and then Tavill delicately sprinkles portions of the exterior texture with clear glaze, creating a subtle glisten upon observation. The final firing takes the kiln to over 2185 degrees as the clay is fully vitrified (no longer porous).

This piece is wonderful in a coastal, transitional or modern home. It is great as a gift or simply as an addition to an eclectic collection.

This piece is 3 3/8" thick x 14" wide.
