Vase with one hole – Darkgray stoneware
Volcanic Rock and Sand Collection
Vase handmade in a dark gray stoneware clay
This special collection is made out of two different stoneware clays. A dark gray clay and a bone white clay. The third colour comes from a mix of both of them. Black volcanic rock and sand have been wedged into the clay and spread out randomly in the making. Before the second firing the pieces are dipped in a silky matte glaze with a different outcome depending on what body of clay it is covering. From shimmery white to a warm yellow/brown colour. During the glaze firing the volcanic rock and sand melts, blends in with the glaze and runs alongside the ceramic pieces. The result is unpredictable and a lot is left to chance, making every piece unique.
The vase is handmade by Malwina Kleparska - a ceramic artist based in Gothenburg, Sweden. In her practice she uses traditional hand-building techniques, such as coiling, rolling, and pinching, when making her functional sculptures. Her ceramic pieces are, for the most part, made out of stoneware clay, a hard and durable material. Every piece is made by hand and by leaving visible marks from the artists' fingertips.
