Vector Field Vase – White on Black


This vase features porcelain slip on a dark brown/black clay body, with a speckly amber liner glaze. 6.75″ high.

The decorated surface began as vertical dashes stenciled onto the surface of a clay cylinder. With the wheel spinning, I stretched the cylinder outward from the inside, leaving the exterior surface untouched. The final pattern maps this transformation–a record of the initial pattern, the directional spin of the wheel, the magnitude of expansion, and the plasticity of the clay body. The seam spiraling up the side of the pot is an artifact of the stencil, which was made from the plastic mesh of a citrus bag (reduce, re-use, recycle).
