Woodfired “Moon Jar” by Grace Kerr, with a dark midnight blue glazed interior and rim, and a textured natural ash glazed exterior, ranging from tones of brown and gold to tan and off-white. Wood-firing is very time consuming process as the wood fueled kiln must be stoked continuously by hand, usually for days! The natural wood ash from the firing process melts onto the surface of the pottery during the firing, giving the clay a toasty natural brown color and the glazes a rich luscious depth. This moon jar has an ancient, timeless feel, and functions as a flower vase or simply as decorative piece for your home.
Grace’s work is strongly influenced by her connection to nature, her Buddhist practice, and nearly 30 years as a Technical Designer in the fashion industry. She grew up in Kaohsiung, Taiwan where as a child she as she dug up clay, keenly observed the forming and shaping processes of her creations, and deepening her connection to the earth. Her creative practice is a collaboration where the natural beauty of the clay is maintained as her creative energy flows through it. The movement of glaze in the kiln then provides a randomness to her work that mirrors the unpredictability of nature.
