Terri Holman Small Flat Bottle with One Handle
Asymmetric small flat bottle hand built with a unique scroll handle at the top. Its decoration is lightly pressed into the clay, then it is filled with subtle colours, each side being different. It has a matt dry texture and the bottle's curves are shaped into a very narrow bottle opening.
Terri Holman uses rolled slabs of clay to make vessels that occupy a shallow space. When the clay is rolled, it is often impressed with found objects giving patterns, grids or more random marks. The colour and surface quality is suggestive of the rural landscape that she is surrounded by. The drawn line is also important as is the delicate shading of colour to emphasize the illusion of a greater depth. The vessels are bisque fired then taken to 1260 degrees in a gas reduction kiln Some pots are then highlighted with enamels.
