Vessels by Dora Alzamora
Finish: Black Smoke-fired in a gas kiln
Materials: Stoneware Clay
Handcrafted in Majorca, Spain
Doras creates unique and one-of-a-kind pieces, the whole process begins and ends with her hands. Everything she makes is hand thrown and handmade. All of my pieces are made from stoneware clays, and finished with highfire glazes or primitive techniques, such as black firing. The inspiration for her designs come from her surroundings; I feel that my work is a quest to express the balance of nature, of imperfect perfection, the crude and the refined, the line and the curve, the space or the lack of it. I find the whole process of transforming earth into an object of beauty, whether it be ornamental or functional, completely captivating.
