This vessel is an interpretation of an ancient state of being. This piece, along with a others within the orgánica collection, are inspired by a state imagined by ancient peoples creating similar work. We try to emulate what it may have been like to create pottery in the ancient world, and we inject it into these pieces.
The six extrusions on the exterior of the piece are an interpretation of a puruvian mystery that still baffles scientists today. There are "nubs" on ancient megalithic wall stones that seem impossible to create, with apparently no function. These are "nubs".
The texture on this piece is left over from the creation process. The subtle imperfections give it a presence, and each line represents the touch of a human hand. The entire piece was made without the use of tools, and brings you back to a time where the bond between clay and human began.
