This Small Black Vessel with Copper Detail, made by Dora Alzamora Good, displays how she uses the flame of her gas kiln to her advantage, to make wonderful and unique one of a kind pieces with spectacular organic textures. It reveals Dora’s aim to create an object of imperfect perfection through crudely refined line and form, and to transform the earth into an object of beauty to outlive its creator.
Dimensions: H-16.5 cm x W-13 cm
As all products are handmade, sizes and colour may vary slightly.
Dora Alzamora Good is part of the Alzamora and Good family matriarchal trio, living and working in Majorca. She is a third generation practitioner of ceramics.
Her ceramics are intended to express the balance of time and nature. Through a spontaneous artistic process which is both conscious and subconscious, Dora creates objects which aim to provoke an emotional reaction through their shape, form, texture, and colour.
Dora converted an electric kiln into a gas kiln and experiments with firing techniques, such as the primitive technique of black firing, in order to achieve a range of surfaces and textures. She mixes chalky glazes that have been passed down from her ceramicist grandmother. Her one of a kind pieces echo nature in their imperfection; humble and beautiful.
