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.
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.
