Black Stoneware Vessel XIX

Bronwen Grieves
Black Stoneware Vessel XIX is a minimalist decorative vessel by ceramicist Bronwen Grieves. White slip has been gently rubbed away to suggest a gradual weathering of the piece.

Bronwen's vessel is inspired by her surroundings, both organic and man-made. She allows the aesthetic of the piece to develop during the making process. The simple finish of the vessel is purposeful, referencing the arches and plinths, which hold up constructions such as water-towers and bridges.

The vessel is built up using flattened coils of grogged black stoneware clay, incised with vertical or horizontal lines and decorated with white slip and oxides. This is rubbed down to reveal the lines and rough texture of the clay.
