Stoneware with Glaze
6" x 3.5" x 3.5"
Creolophus Cirrhatus is a light-colored fungus that grows off trees. With this piece I decided to keep both the shape and glazing of the vessel simple to showcase the textures of the bark on the vessel and the fungi itself.
Symbiosis is a visual commentary on the relationship between self and environment. The vessels act as a manmade element while each of the attached ornaments, inspired by local species, compliment the shape and movement of each piece. Each work reflects the impressionable and impactful nature of how mankind interacts with the natural world, and vice versa.
