Project Description

Deep Space Probe Vessel

DSPV’s imposing industrial stature is inspired by the 1950’s era of space race design. The inside is glazed in clear gloss making it suitable as a vase, or it can hold its own as a stand-alone piece.

It stands approx. 270 mm tall. The top opening is 150 mm in diameter.

$275

I design, assemble, glaze and fire each piece in my home studio. I make all my own molds from hand-sculpted shapes and found objects. These form the various components that come together to make one vessel.

I use a porcelain clay slip and mix my own colours using stains and some commercial glazes and lusters.

Each piece takes many hours of hands-on time as well as 3-5 firings to complete. Because my vessels are 100% handmade, no two are identical and slight imperfections are part and parcel of each object. Each vessel is fired to 2160°F (1185°C) in an electric kiln and safe for functional use.
