This expressionist clay chalice abstract to ancient chalice form. It's physical base is handbuilt and angular, holding a wheel thrown and altered vessel the size of a wine glass. The white stoneware shows through in places that are not covered with a melted ash glaze over a second glaze that ranges from matt orange to glossy blue. It could be as satisfying in your hand as it is for your eyes.
