Function Follows Form (cont'd)

Here is the finished version of the form featured in an earlier post regarding sculptural utility.

This piece is the result of a 69 hour firing of the small anagama kiln built by Brian Harper at NAU in Flagstaff, AZ. The sharply delineated sides of this bottle form create distinct canvases for the kiln to paint with ash glaze. No slips or glazes were applied.

I have no idea ceramics were fired that long. The colors are amazing and it just be so much better viewing this one in person.

The shape and texture are both intriguing and the view from the top is interesting. The whole thing has a sort of yin yang feel to it.
