Tenmoku Vessel 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. Honoring the Leach legacy with a contemporary mind set during the design process, Matthew has examined styles he loves, as well as those he dislikes, in order to question, learn and inform his pieces. The finished decorative pot communicates these discoveries. A Tenmoku glaze is used as it worked well over the ribbed pattern, carved with a fluting tool over two days whilst the pot continues to dry.
