Living Green, Decanter by metranisome Living Green, Decanter by metranisome
Decanter, thrown in sections and stacked together.
Cone 10 Reduction
Clay- Amador (red-brown stoneware)
Glaze- Reitz Green

This was the result of a sectional stacked piece for class. I wanted to make an organic shape out of simple stacked parts. I plan on continuing this theme with organic variations.

After I made this I realized I must have loosely based it off of [link] by :iconmoodepots: As his work is a clear inspiration for this piece.

nice gesture, I personally am a hand builder but i would suggest throwing several different shapes and assembling them afterwords to play with form. This is something i did that helped me a lot but with hand building .

Very cool. Were all sections thrown separately?

Yes, they were trown one at a time and stacked when the clay had dried enough for it to suppost itself.

I truly find interesting the shape of this decanter, it really recalls a bamboo cane, yet it's curved. Lovely choice in the colour, I like it :D

I totally love this. It looks almost like it's made out of bamboo... very cool.

It makes me want to try stacking wheel-thrown shapes myself.

I'm not really sure what else I can say about this piece other than "wow". This is one of the most creative functional pieces I've seen.

Nice. I like how it looks like bamboo, but isn't stiff, instead it looks alive, like it has its own personality.
