Description:

Mariana Alzamora crafted this sublime moon using coiling and slab methods. The smooth, rounded body is a result of her incredible skill and experience building ceramics - using a burnishing technique. She uses a range of different clays with varying tones and hues which offers an overall exquisite finish. Fired at cone 06, the neutral grey tones are a delight to the eye and complement the form.

 

About the Artist

Mariana Alzamora is part of the Alzamora and Good family matriarchal trio, living and working in Majorca. The ancient and mythological tales that Mariana uses as source material for her ceramics and paintings are stories of female empowerment, a fitting motif for an artist who is surrounded by her closest female relatives. The relationship between her works and ancient history is reiterated in the use of clay that has been ground by pre-historic glaciers surrounding great granite rocks.
