Monumental in form and stature, this sublime conical vessel exhibits an exterior surface of smokey, dark greys marked with an intricate lichen-like patterning of cyan blues and soft ochres. Its interior displays a stark cool blue base - drawing the eye in. A softly dimpled imprint of the artist’s hand and delicately carved splices that appear like gills feature on 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.
