Hand thrown vase in dark green glaze with gold lustre.
"Thinking about surface, I became drawn to the ancient, very slow and specialised Japanese art form of Kinsugi which uses gold to repair and illuminate cracked ceramics emphasising the pottery's damaged history rather than hiding it. Here, the process of repair is a creative act which appreciates the new life given to the mended piece. Art is in the beauty of transformation." Abigail SchamaDimensions: w-14cm x h-24cm

London based ceramic artist Abigail Schama came to pottery from painting. Abigail Schama’s hand thrown, stoneware bowls tell stories through surface. Any bowl is basic and universal in its meaning. The process of building up and then turning the form creates their skin and character. Abigail relies on the processes of slipping and chattering; words which describe human contact. These pieces are about imprinting the imperfect, unexpected and unrepeatable marks of a human hand on the most primal and unchanging material.
