Pale Green Fin Vessel I

£500
Pale Green Fin Vessel I by Tina Vlassopulos is inspired by her admiration for contemporary dance and ballet. Tina plays with the form and fluidity of the vessel to instil a sense of movement and precise balance in the piece, mimicking the discipline of a dancer. The result is a truly beautiful work of art in texture and form.

Process

This vessel is carefully crafted from stoneware clay with the addition of a green stain to create the green hue. The process is long and considered, using a variety of specialist tools such as metal kidneys and wooden ribs to scrape and sculpt. Finally, it is repeatedly burnished with metal spoons and pebbles, resulting in an extremely unique smooth finish.
