Tall Verdigris Scripted Vase
This vase was thrown on the wheel before the asemic script was painted on by hand.
The vase was then glazed in a weathered copper green glaze and fired in an electric kiln to 1260'C.
The asemic script, or 'writing without meaning' on this piece is inspired by my study of Japanese language, particularly their calligraphic writing system. I enjoy playing with the way in which the paint brush flows to create the impression of text and I wonder what hidden message the pot is trying to convey.
