- Product Details
This vessel has been crafted to convey the “the beauty of form”. Focused on teasing the eye, this piece incorporates two different surface treatments, one scored, one coated in matt white Lucy Rie glaze. Each work in this range is a unique collector’s item, representing an exciting return to Iva Polachova’s established style.
Iva Polachova is a London based potter specialising in functional tableware, decorative vessels and vases. The creative process and rhythm of making are crucial to Iva’s work. She draws inspiration from the ideas of sculptor Constantin Brancusi on the essential in art and is also influenced by artist Paul Klee’s thoughts on what the artist should take from nature. Iva’s work combines balance, clearness, fluidity and tactility.
Iva uses a variety of clays, ranging from the refined to the coarse – from porcelain to crank. Use of glazes is generally limited to shades of white with the occasional use of oxides and slips under the glaze. Using simple ceramic tools – scraper and rasp blades in particular – the tool marks are often left visible under the glazed surface as a gentle reminder of the handmade.
