Original Abstract Sculpture by Mark Zurbuchen | Abstract Art on Ceramic | Riven 1

Product details
About The Artwork
A decorative thrown-and-altered piece made from Black Mountain clay with heavy-grit grog, and a crawling, white glaze around the rim. Inside is coated with an oil-based gilding size. I have developed the technique for these pieces over many years. The work involves heavy use of a blowtorch while working the wet clay. The Riven series draws inspiration from textures in the natural world. It also reflects the conversation that I had with the clay while producing this piece. The contrasting combinations of fire and wet clay, and of the soft clay with the hard grog, work together to lead to a great number of fascinating shapes and textures. NOTE on use: Sizing is water-resistant, but I do not recommend using this piece as a vase. It works best as a display and conversation piece. Bottom is sealed with resin, and is painted with gilding size. From the artist's private collection.
