This folded rim vessel exhibits a deep black interior that draws the eye in - a stark contrast to its exterior surface adorned with an intricate lichen-like patterning of cyan and ochre tones. Its generous, full-bellied bowl shape is masterfully weighted and finished.
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.
