Stoneware Tube Vase
This vase has been made with the handbuilding process of slab building, this ancient technique has been used for many of thousands of years. This approach to making pottery allows it to be created without pottery wheels, using only the makers hands and simple tools. I gravitate towards this way of making as it shows evidence of the human hand – the human being behind the work.
Each piece takes many hours to form by hand, then allowing time to dry for a period of 2-4 weeks before the kiln firing process.
Each piece may differ slightly from the one photographed, as they are each hand-built – holding individual uniqueness.
Handbuilt in Perth, Australia.
Unglazed stoneware clay.
Measurements: approximately 10cm T x 2.5cm W.
