Care: Water-tight, high-fired porcelain. Gently hand wash.
This generous, full-bellied vessel is one of two works in the Vocation collection where the interior has been decisively carved by the artist’s hand. Alongside its carved lines, hues of cyan, russet and dark brown meld together in an intricate lichen-like patterning.
About the Artist
Jack Doherty is a ceramic artist based in Cornwall. Using one clay body, one colouring mineral and one single firing technique, Doherty’s singleness of process and practice of utmost refinement has granted him a way of making that allows him to speak of the stories that are important to him. Doherty’s fascination with prehistoric ceramics is revealed through the form of the vessels themselves, whose archetypal shapes have their roots in a universal history.
