A recurring form in Doherty’s practice, this pod vessel exhibits a generous, full-bellied form. Its exterior surface is adorned with an intricate lichen-like patterning of cyan and ochre tones, and is marked with both a softly dimpled imprint of the artist’s hand and delicately carved splices that appear like gills upon the vessel’s surface.
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.
