One of a kind individually hand-coiled ceramic vessels sculpted in Berkeley California by the artist Erin McGuiness. Coil building is an ancient ceramic process of rolling out “snakes” of clay and then spiraling the coils vertically to build walls. She enjoys clay most in the moment when a form is made but not yet fired. The clay is full of air and cool to the touch, alive with both its own materiality and the record of the artist’s touch. The love of that moment informs her glaze decisions; the work is left raw with glaze washes. The same finish is used for all forms within a grouping and a minimalist approach to the surface is chosen so that the form is prominent and the multiple vessel groupings appear to be from the same “family”.
