Smoke-fired ceramic vessel by Katharine Rabson Stark

  • Smoke-fired ceramic vessel made from white clay.

    This is a statuesque, sculptural decorative vessel which is unique in every way. It started by making a pinch pot, with coils added to make it taller and larger, morphing and changing gradually as I built it. Its like a lady, a beautiful lady. The vessel has then been burnished (polished) with a pebble, to make it shine, then fired once in an electric kiln, then again in a metal dustbin with layers of sawdust and gathered materials such as bracken, dock leaves and seeds, dandelion stems and cow parsley. This gives the piece the colour and the wondrous markings. It is then polished gently with a furniture wax to give it soft sheen.

    Approx 33cm high x 14cm wide at its widest point.
