Zen Spaceship Vessel with Cast Bronze Grapevine Lid

Zen Spaceship Vessels by Carol Green for FUNERIA®

Hand thrown, mica-clay earthenware vessels. Cast bronze grapevine handle on fabricated copper lid with bronze/brown patina

Like stars twinkling in a night sky, the mica flakes that are embedded in the clay create a soft shimmering glow. Hands fit appreciatively around the curves of these masterfully formed vessels. During the firing process, the clay absorbs a smokey palette that will darken the surfaces in a range of shades. Some vessels will be very dark—almost black, while others will be warm brown. Some may be streaked with tan or salmon based on the clay pot’s location in the kiln. The artist’s patina for each lid (variations of bronze/brown) is determined by how well each complements the clay body.

As each of the Zen Spaceship Vessels is handmade on a spinning potters wheel, some variations in form and size will occur.
