Serving dish, white stoneware, thrown and altered, wood fired

Here is the serving dish I made after I visited Nick Joerling‘s workshop at the Bascom (NC) last summer. Nick was amazing (super informative and encouraging), workshop was a great experience, and the place itself is worth seeing – great modern facility beautifully designed and fit into the surrounding nature so flawlessly. I would love to come back there (despite the ~12-hour drive). They have great summer workshop program.

This piece was made in attempt to copy Nick’s technique (you can see his original piece here). I think it worked the way I intended. I was very interested in throwing-and-altering techniques, and Nick’s are the ones that give specific freedom and movement to the process of building as well as to the shape of the final form.  I modified the feet though (made them more subdued and girly). Wood firing nicely complements the organic shape. More pieces from this series are coming up in the next posts.

Лена!!!! Оказывается, у всеми любимого чудесного чайника-слоника появились еще и детки-чашечки-блюдечки! как красиво!! Ты умница и, как всегда, неподражаема!
Твой не “просто друг”, а еще и почитатель таланта.
