This piece, aptly named the summer tea bowl, exhibits an intricate lichen-like patterning of soft ochres and cool, grey blues - as if recalling the sky on a hazy, sun-soaked day. The bowl’s base is masterfully turned and curved, finished with the maker’s mark.
About the Artist
Jack Doherty is a ceramic artist based in Cornwall. Using one clay body, one colouring mineral and one single firing technique, Doherty’s singleness of process and practice of utmost refinement has granted him a way of making that allows him to speak of the stories that are important to him. Doherty’s fascination with prehistoric ceramics is revealed through the form of the vessels themselves, whose archetypal shapes have their roots in a universal history.
