Triangular Forms/Vessels

These triangular sculptural ceramic forms and vessels evolved from my interest in making the triangular structures that support the haiku poems. Unlike my cylindrical clay forms, these shapes allow for me to think in terms of the separate, but contiguous, planes that are affected by glaze and texture. I am intrigued by how glaze brush patterns can wrap around these angles and still present a visual pattern of continuity. I am also fascinated with introducing subtle vertical curves to the clay forms.

All of these forms/vessels are made of stoneware clay, fired to 2250-2350+ºF. They range in size, 13-24″ height. The lidded vessel interiors are also glazed and can hold the contents of your choice.
