Turquoise Toot Vessel

Tina Vlassopulos
£1,000
Turquoise Toot Vessel by Tina Vlassopulos features as part of a body of work called 'Silent Sounds', which explores the theme of silence, sound and music. Tina has purposefully added a hidden element to the piece, by lining the inside with small balls of clay so that the piece gently rattles when moved. The vessel aims to convey sound, intertwining the transient qualities of the aural with the silence and permanence of fired clay.

Process

This vessel is carefully crafted from stoneware clay. 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.
