Bottle form 3
Made by Rory Shearer
Small hand built bottle form by Rory Shearer in Co. Antrim, Northern Ireland. Rory created this piece using celadon glaze over dark slip, porcelain slip and iron oxide with added brush decoration.
Concentrating on surface, his pieces are no longer just containers, but are hollow forms that you want to pick up, touch, move your hand over the surface and examine the exterior. Rory’s work shares characteristics with large abstract painting, beautiful from a distance but compelling you to look ever closer.
Approximate Measurements: height 17cm x width 10cm depth 10cm
