Our First Dance
Stoneware vessel with manganese slip
420 (H) x 300 mm
About the work
Our First Dance is a characterful combination piece thrown and modelled using stoneware clay in a reduction firing. A textural vessel patterned with surface sgraffito with inlaid manganese slip, decorated with a copper dry glaze and stoneware slips, it is a sentimental piece about having fun and looking back at one of Chris’s first dances in public. It can be used as a functional object, as a carafe or double headed vase but it also has the presence to stand alone as a sculptural display piece. The heads are representative of different attitudes and are both removable and interchangeable. We are honoured to offer this one off ceramic by Chris Bramble exclusively on Fels.
