Made in France.

A sculptural stoneware vessel in brown to pink with a large swath of soft black. To create this unique finish, the piece is burnished with an agate stone, bisque-fired, smoked, waxed, then re-worked with Urushi lacquer and gold in the traditional Japanese Kintsugi technique.

A piece by French artist Karen Swami whose ceramic vessels are hand thrown and finished in colors and textures that evoke ancient cultures and forms.

Swami’s vessels are composed of a series of movements. “To touch, to throw, to smooth, to incise, to encrust, each step requires a movement,” she explains. The resulting work, too, is if as in motion, with dynamic finishes and the monumental swelling or lengthening of forms. Working between Paris and Brittany, France, Karen Swami first experienced working with clay at the age of five, but it wasn’t until 2009 that she re-discovered ceramics by way of a potter’s wheel she set up the corner of her office.

One of a kind.

Intended for decorative use. To hold any water, an insert must be used within.
