Inspired by midcentury modern design, the pierced collection is wheel thrown and hand pierced stoneware with a satin glaze. Small holes are created when the clay is still wet and then each hole is painstakingly enlarged and smoothed when the clay is bone dry. The interplay of light and shadow, color, and form complements any urban, contemporary, or transitional space. The Openwork Orb Vessel also works beautifully as a candleholder.
