Hand-built plate with a thick cracked white thick Shino glaze* with wood fired texture. A beautiful 'functional art piece'.
Elena’s aim is not perfection, on the contrary, her belief is 'imperfections make the bowls come alive, make them easier to relate to, make them more human. 'Nature’s perfection lies within its own asymmetry.'
Size: D350 mm
Handmade in Auckland, New Zealand
*Shino glaze originates from the late 16th century in the Mino region of Japan where it’s loosely thrown pots and spontaneous decorations were perfectly suited to the wabi-sabi aesthetics of the ruling Zen Buddhist tea masters of that era.
