Shino Jar II
Shino Jar II by ceramics artist Matthew Foster. Inspired by pattern and referencing Mingei and Leach Pottery traditions, this piece forms part of a series of new work – created exclusively for The New Craftsmen – which explores a wide range of practises. Matthew has examined storage jars from around the world to question, learn and inform this piece. The finished decorative pot communicates these discoveries. Covered in a glossy shino glaze, a method of glazing which originated in 16th century Japan and purposefully recreated here to enhance the jar’s unique motif. The motif is applied using a roller tool notched with a pattern of Matthew’s own design.
