Hand thrown and carved, this sake set by Abigail Schama has a perfectly balanced form, with thoughtfully applied surface texture. Finished with a beautifully soft glaze, the pieces are gifted delicate touches of gold throughout. The soft tone of each piece subtly contrasts the intentionally playful silhouettes, allowing the pieces their own character and endless points of interest.
About the Artist
London based ceramic artist, Abigail Schama, came to pottery from painting. Abigail Schama’s hand thrown, stoneware bowls tell stories through surface. Any bowl is basic and universal in its meaning. The process of building up and then turning the form creates their skin and character. Abigail relies on the processes of slipping and chattering; words which describe human contact.
Abigail plays with a palette of dolomite and transparent glazes. Each piece undergoes a further firing to be lightly gilded with (24 carat) gold lustre, which highlight the shape of each form and create an intriguing contrast with the more humble tones and textures of her work.
