Vessels by Mark Gordon for FUNERIA®
Wheel thrown, Raku-fired and glazed clay
Gordon’s clay aesthetic has been formed and informed by travel to twenty countries—from backyard brick makers in Aswan and semi-tropical northern Argentina, to isolated wheel throwers in central Turkey and Southern Spain, to a potter making drain pipes by hand in northern Syria. He is drawn to the craftsmanship of cultures in which objects that are made are used. As funerary urns, Gordon’s Vessels incorporate and reflect a breath—an inflation that animates simply elegant forms intended for containment.
