This vase demonstrates how Grace Alzamora’s work is informed by ancient pottery. Allusions to the past are enhanced by the vessel’s texture and patterning, which, as well as being totally unique, evoke the passing of time.
Dimensions: H-15.5 cm x W-16 cm
As all products are handmade, sizes and colour may vary slightly.
Gracia Alzamora is part of the Alzamora and Good family matriarchal trio, living and working in Majorca. She has travelled extensively throughout Europe and the Americas. These experiences have resulted in ceramics which draw on multiple sources of inspiration; from her South American roots, to Greek and Asian ancient pottery.
Her career in ceramics and sculpture began in 1992, when she moved to Boca Grande, an island on the Gulf of Mexico. She was taught by her mother and sister Mariana, who had started a studio there.
Grace mainly hand builds her beautiful and ‘perfectly imperfect’ pieces. They are formed from high fire stoneware and occasionally terracotta. Grace creates her own special glazes with local, natural materials. The final elements of Grace’s practice are burnishing and pit-firing.
