CERAMICS – Desert Jar #1


Handmade by Wesley Scott in his Brooklyn, NY studio as part of his show, "Solar Terrain" at Mount Sunny Studio

Material: Clay
Size: 10¾" x 7"
Year: 2021

Each piece is hand built to subtly mimic a classic form and then manipulated.  In some instances, the pieces are manipulated too far and repaired with simple bars that mimic the handstitching of the clothing and assemblages to show the breakages. The surface of each piece is shaved to bring the clay’s grog to the surface for a sandy texture. These pieces are then lightly glazed so that the clay body’s texture came through.
