Tall ceramic plinths


Mexican Potter, Based in Auckland, Iza Lozano's new series of works 


'Searching for minerals beneath volcanoes'

These hematite stone-inspired ceramic works are the starting point of an ongoing series/exploration on minerals, flux, and texture.

Wheel-thrown, coiled, and modeled during a residency at Auckland Studio Potters at the end of 2022, these plinths, large-scale vessels, candleholders, posters, have been mid-fired with glazes primarily based on bone ash and metal oxides.

Minerals and other objects such as marbles, quartz crystals, rutile pebbles, and metal have been fired to melt -or not- on top of the glaze, leaving a trace, a crater, a flowing feature. Landscape.


Materials: Clay Wheel-thrown, minerals, quartz, metal & black glaze vessel.

Size: Approx. D240 x H510mm

Handcrafted in Auckland, NZ
