Description: wheel-thrown vessel; black stoneware with porcelain, sgraffito decoration.
"I mainly work in stoneware, using clay with varying degrees of roughness. I either burnish the surface using stones and lightbulbs, or quite the opposite, scrape it with metal ribs to expose the texture. My goal is to express those formative, dynamic relationships between opposites and translate them through my work, using minimum decoration and allowing texture to take the lead. My work is tactile – to understand it, it must be touched as well as seen." Ania Perkowska
