Prague Series #2
When I visited Prague in August 2017, I was inspired by so many things. Our tour guide told us, “You can tell the age of a building by the patterns that were used.” I took many photos of these patterns, and this piece is directly inspired by the diamond patterns that were prevalent throughout the city. I built the square ceramic vase with the black and cream pattern of my inspiration, then knocked out three triangular windows before firing. I applied the buttercream and black glazes with a rough, imperfect method in reference to the age of the buildings in Prague. Then I wove wool and ribbon through the windows to create visual interest.
This piece is currently on display at Artbarn52 in Edina, MN.
