Tea Bowl 779
Mitch Iburg — 2018
sold
The artist is fond of working with indigenous clay and mineral resources which he most often digs himself. They are then hand-formed into vessels which are wood-fired for three to nine days. The net result is pieces which have the distinctive coloration of the process. Some are placed in the firebox of the kiln, and, as a result of being buried in embers, have a unique crusty texture.

Wild harvested California rhyolitic clay (Loch Lomond, CA) & crude Ione Kaolin (Ione, CA). Fired for 5 days in Mendocino, CA using madrone, tan oak, douglas fir, and digger pine. No applied glaze.

"I seek to create work which combines the physiological substance and emotional characteristics of place to form an expression of its terroir."
