Deep Space Rocket Vessel
This imposing vessel stands 320 mm tall with its lid on top. It has a clear glazed interior suitable for use as a vase. The exterior has the well-worn appearance of a vessel that has travelled far into space and withstood the burn of re-entry to the atmosphere.
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.
