Barney Vessel by Mel Lumb
• Buff stoneware, wheelthrown and altered, high fired, layered Mediterranean blue glaze w/ porcelain slip detail
• Approximately 22.5cm high by 13.5cm diameter
• Use as a vase, planter or sculptural vessel
Hailing from the Sunshine Coast in QLD, Mel makes each and every single piece herself, using custom glazes and firing in a kiln powered by solar to reduce the need for fossil fuel in production. Her work is a study in small and large pieces that are tactile, earthy, and contemporary.
This body of work represents the human form, celebrating the strength of our similarities while embracing our individuality. Additions, cutouts and carvings mimic our learnings as well as the physical and emotional scars that leave us altered but even more beautiful than before.
