How does he do it?! You’re seeing this correctly: there’s an unglazed ceramic exterior to this vase, but then, peer between the geometric cut-outs, and yep! There’s a whole other vessel within…. and it’s glazed a lustrous chocolate brown! What the what?! How does he glaze a whole other ceramic wall on the INSIDE?!
They interior and exterior make one complete vase– with some crazy magic (artisan skill?) that seamlessly merges the two forms to create a fully functional, water-tight container.
Besides being skilled and clever in the way o’ clay, Practical Art artisan Alan Jones is a talented musician, and we hear he’s also a teacher at Schemer Art Center. That’s a triple threat in my book!
A GREAT GIFT FOR:
The ‘I’m REALLY Sorry’
