Viewed from above, it has an irregular quadrilateral shape, and the lid sits flush with the base neatly. Use it to store keepsakes, or simply as a decorative piece for your home.
Wood-firing is a 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.
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.
