Short Shino Vase by Jordan Gower
Member's price $162.00
South Australian artist Jordan Gower creates small batch ceramics that reference the rich history of wheel-thrown studio pottery. The AGSA Store has commissioned a limited edition of Shino vases to celebrate the contemporary Japanese ceramics exhibition Pure Form.
The vases feature a special glaze effect, where the surface is starting to peel back from itself, creating small globules and revealing the clay underneath. A large amount of zinc has been used, increasing the shrinkage of the glaze and producing a dense, white surface. Often seen in traditional Japanese Shino glazes, the effect is known as ‘crawling’ and adds interest to an otherwise simple surface.
Each vessel is unique and may vary from the image.
