Dish on tall foot

Installation produced during the International Ceramic Symposium JICA in Seoul, Korea in 1995.

"Offering Grail"

I mounted this dish on a tall foot in order to give it a sacred radiation. At the same time I want to raise the dish as a piece of art, just like a sculpture is placed on a socle. This dish also refers historical and ritual objects

Size: 45 cm tall, 25 cm diameter

Technique: dish is thrown in porcelain, burnished + terra sigillata; saggarfired.
Foot is hand built in coarse grogged stoneware clay and smoke fired.
