Bird Bottle by ceramicist Isatu Hyde. This unique, ceramic piece mimics the shape and construction of leather water bags carried by horsemen between 907 and 1125 AD in Mongolia, when the territory belonged to the Liao Dynasty. The flow of lines, animism and surprising subtleties of this form inspired Isatu to craft her own interpretation.
Material: Stoneware clay
Dimensions: Height: 8cm, Width: 8cm
Care Instructions: Wash by hand.
The open pear-shaped form is thrown and allowed to dry a little before its rim is sealed. The spout is thrown and moulded on, before the entire piece is decorated with a satin-matt, off-white glaze.
Ceramicist Isatu Hyde trained in pottery for three years under the instruction of Andrew Crouch at The Marches Pottery in Ludlow, Shropshire. Isatu is Andrew’s only apprentice and works alongside him still. Isatu works with a range of clays, glazes and styles, with a focus on reduction-fired stoneware. Function is an important aspect of Isatu's work as she is inspired by “beauty that is identified by use” (Soetsu Yanagi), as well as her love for domestic craft from ancient civilisations, from Minoan vases to Japanese Jomon fire pots
