About the work
For Fels, we are proud to present 3 of George’s stunning handcrafted vases. The bodies are coil built from an oxide rich black stoneware clay and display the bulges and dips which punctuate the coiling process. Left unglazed to reveal sporadic flecks of grog on their textured surfaces, they have gone through a single oxidation firing to reach vitrification.
The influence of primitive techniques is joyously evident in this curvaceous collection of vases; the wobbly shapes, grainy surface texture and deep earth tones are a celebration of hand built pottery processes. George’s trademark tiny handles and subtle faces are cohesive details in accentuating the vases’ individual personalities whilst simultaneously linking them as a family.
These are unglazed vessels and unsuitable for holding liquids.
