The new stoneware line is inspired by the rustic stoneware Korean pottery from 14th century Joseon Dynasty called Buncheong. Traditionally less refined, Buncheong-ware had a poetic quality to its rugged construction, brushed white slip and carved surface decoration. History informs the way in which I translated old techniques into new cultural-hybrids. My approach was to capture the historical qualities of the pots by introducing a darker stoneware clay, while using the brushwork, carving and China painting to present both old and new interpretations of the cloud motif. The Cloud Bottle has a shape resembling a rice bale, historically used in Korea in harvesting or to carry water. The Cloud Bottle was wheel-thrown vertically, then turned on its side for the application of the neck and the foot.
