Calming ceramic vessels – greens, white, black

Ceramic landscape recreation

 

Recently I’ve been using the above English countryside image as a wallpaper on my computer. The charcoal grey road winding down into a light infused valley flooded with tonal contrasts, towards distant dark mountains, projects a visceral calm. An alluring dichotomy exists between the optimism of the white flowering trees and innocence of the grazing sheep against the foreboding dark mountains in the background. Overall the impression is of the sublime and I decided to recreate this mood in a post with ceramic pieces of black and white and an assortment of greens. I favored a faded pallete and unglazed porcelains with matt surfaces and gentle textures to capture a relaxed feeling. Uncomplicated pieces, predominantly handmade, were also featured to enhance an organic appearance with an air of simplicity. I mainly favored porcelains for their durability and  being symbiotic with the endurance of the natural world. Images edited with ethereal misty contrasts that imitate the light diffusion that saturate landscapes were also used.
