Dappled Lidded Vessel
Dappled Lidded Vessel by Abigail Schama explores notions of femininity and privacy through shape and function. Gold lustre adds an aura of preciousness to this unique decorative piece, which is also watertight and serves as a storage jar. Abigail modelled this work on the curvaceous Moon Jar – a traditional form found in Korean ceramic art – and feeling the rounded shape was suggestive of the female form, she added a lid to the vessel for privacy. When it comes to surfaces, Abigail prefers texture to a smooth finish. Leaving the ripples of her throwing rings visible, the artist creates a personal impression on her work.
