The Moon shifts the tides of the seas and oceans – it moves the water of the Earth. The white and turquoise glazes, together with the smoke, work together to evoke the movement of water, the swirling and ever changing seas and oceans.
This Moon Jar is inspired by the Korean icon, and I have developed the link between the Moon and water, using the ‘smoke-on-glaze’ technique of smoke firing a glazed pot.
Handbuilt, by coiling into 2 hemispherical moulds and then joined together, using white earthenware clay. Approx 16.5cm x 16.5cm. Not suitable for use with liquids
