Hand coiled and built on a kick wheel using the onggi method I learned in Korea, this moon jar interpretation brings together elements from my time in Icheon as well as new material studies from the Sierra Nevada range. Kaolin slips are poured over the rotating form to envelop it, overlapping sections to create depth and a veiled aesthetic.
The finish is made using an ancient combination of straw ash, washed wood ash (ecologically sourced from a local baker), and minerals, namely wild kaolins and ground feldspar. Naturally occurring iron impurities burn through leaving a sea of black iron stars on a warm white universe of clay.
Watertight, ideal for wet or dry flower arrangements, or as a stand-alone piece.
