Maker: Annette Lindenberg
Handmade in UK.
Dimensions: W 9cm x H 9cm
Materials: Grey Clay and ‘Garden Blue’ Ash Glaze
Method: Hand Sculpted, Kurinuki (the Japanese technique of hollowing solid clay)
A beautiful Yunomi cup by Annette Lindenberg, made from grey clay and pouring of her garden blue ash glaze which is made from locally sourced and burnt materials. It is inspired by the feeling of watching the sea drift over pebbles and rocks, leaving behind pools of water.
Handcrafted by Lindenberg, she skilfully uses her intuition to layer each individual form, alternating between subconscious and conscious design and material decisions. The rock like forms evolved through experimentation with mixing materials and utilising her carving capabilities. This piece is exquisitely tactile, with smooth and rough surfaces and a glazed interior and exterior. It holds very interesting organic forms across the body, emphasising Lindenberg’s unique making processes.
