Torn by artist Sarah Purvey is a decorative vessel which forms part of an ongoing series exploring Sarah's intensely physical connection to her work. Throughout her process, Sarah explores clay, drawing and mark making, resulting in powerful, sculptural ceramics which combine monumentality and subtlety. Each piece is coiled using heavily grogged stoneware clays, which she then draws into so they become charged with her own emotional landscape. This particular piece features a tactile and textured surface which is scored directly into the exterior of the vessel and topped with an ochre slip finish.
