These Deep bowls and/or wide-mouth vases are all one-of-a-kind. Used for serving food, as containers for fruit, or for flower arrangements, or simply to occupy a special niche, they can stand on their own as sculpture, and reflect a playful yet masterful approach to the medium. The forms are all thrown on the potter’s wheel and altered while still damp. Luisa sprays the layered slips and glazes on each piece with great attention to the form to enhance it. The slips and glazes react with the soda introduced into the kiln at peak temperature to produce unpredictable and often spectacular and exciting surfaces which enhance the form perfectly.
