Materials: Stoneware clay with 24ct gold kintsugi detail
Crafted by artist Rhian Jones, this striking moon was made using burnished raku stoneware clay. Using the traditional pit and saggar firing method, Jones takes an experimental approach by firing her work with seaweed and adding various types of salt and fruit peel. The light, dreamy colour palette of this moon is a perfect combination with the 24ct gold kintsugi repair and decoration. This piece has a small, curled opening and wide body, sitting perfectly in any room.
Water resistant on the outside, cannot be filled with water
Can be cleaned gently with a microfibre cloth.
About the Artist:
Welsh potter, Rhian Jones, hand builds ceramic vessels with gold gilding. Since graduating from Carmarthen School of Art with her ceramics degree she has been perfecting the techniques of her craft.
Rhian uses the oldest known method of firing pottery, pit firing. The unpredictable nature of this method creates un- certain outcomes due to the ferocity and intensity of the firing. An array of organic materials are burnt with the wares, adorning them with beautiful colours and markings that could never be recreated. A true collaboration with nature.
