Black and white pod

Black and white pod sculpture

This black and white pod sculpture is breaking open to reveal an intricately decorated interior in a mix of black and white clays.  A nature inspired pattern of spikes and ball forms create a surprising world of detail inside the pod.  This tactile, neutral coloured sculptured fits perfectly in your hands and encourages the viewer to look beyond the surface.  This visually stunning sculpture makes a statement on any coffee table, shelf or mantle and celebrates the potential inside all living things.

Made from stoneware clay and decorated with coloured slips and glazes inside, and a textured lava glaze on the outside.  Each spike has been individually hand rolled and carefully applied inside.

Dimensions: 12.5cm w x 12.5cm d x 16.5cm h

This piece is part of my Potential Inside collection which is inspired by the amazing potential inside all living things including seed pods as well as humans and animals for creation and birth. It encourages the viewer to look beyond the surface to see the true beauty inside and is a celebration of creation.
