Small Milk Jug hand-built by Alessandra Taccia, with wide lid and an organic texture which is alternately rough and smooth. Alessandra’s exploration of space and composition, especially negative space, has been translated from painting to ceramics. Her interest in still-life and domestic objects demonstrates her desire to find the sublime in everyday life.
The majority of Alessandra’s ceramics originate as pinch pots which are then developed through a coiling process. The muted hues and matt surfaces are achieved by applying dry glazes or simply leaving the exterior unglazed. Alessandra’s works are both functional and sculptural and can be used everyday, elevating the experience of daily rituals.
Dimensions: H9.5cm x W14cm
