Very rustic, wheel thrown taupe stoneware jar. Unglazed exterior with beating marks on the sholder of the jar. Glazed inside with a silk matte semi-transparent glaze. "Sweat mark" on the sholder from bio material. This piece has a very organic shape; it´s very uneven and has a vivid expression - please see photos (I´ve added more photos than usual to show the nature of this jar.)
H: 22,5 cm. / 8.85 In. Dia: 23,5 cm. / 9.25 In.
"Ever since I saw a moon jar in Japan I´ve marveled at the skill that goes into making these; the calm, strong expression they possess is impressive. Also, the fact that they are made in two pieces and then assembled add to the complexity of making the jar. Though I´m highly influenced by the Japanese tradition, I´m aware of my Scandinavian inheritance. Making a moon jar is infused with old traditions and symbols; some I might not grasp the full depth of – but I do hope that the sincere love of form shines through in my pieces, and that they too convey calm and strength. That´s what I´ve been aiming for in shaping my jars."
