Flint Black Vessel III (Medium)

Elaine Bolt
Flint Black Vessel III (Small) by Elaine Bolt is a wheel-thrown porcelain vessel with a hand cut, locally grown willow stem added to the top as a decorative feature.

Flint Black Vessel III (Medium) by Elaine Bolt was inspired by the colours and tones of the Sussex landscape, where the flint and chalk fields provide a distinctive backdrop. The locally sourced clay and willow further connect the work to the local landscape creating a tangible connection between the object and the source of its inspiration.

This ceramic piece is thrown on the wheel and small holes are added towards the top when hard. Once fired, the piece is left unglazed. A length of copper wire, oxidised and shaped to complement the shape of the vessel, is then attached.
