Trina Twist Coastal Texture Vessel

500.00

This truly unique sculptural one of a kind creamy white coastal inspired vessel is both decorative and functional. It is inspired by the texture and movement discovered along the shore during Tavill's seaside travels. Its coral-like undulating thick to thin texture is handmade through a series of creative processes in the artist's ceramic studio. The artist throws sandy stoneware clay on the pottery wheel, alters the form and later intricately carves and designs the pattern. 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 recessed foot upon completion during the  greenware stage. The piece is substantial in weight due to the necessity for thickness to achieve such texture. The first firing secures the carving and texture and then Tavill coats the interior with clear glaze and delicately sprinkles portions of the exterior texture with the same 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 8" tall x 6 5/8" wide.
