Lava (People) were born from a collaboration with Danish ceramic artist Louise Gaarmann during a weekend residency in Louise's studio in 2011. The Lava are fun, approachable sculpture pieces.
Each Lava is hand thrown, fired three times and glazed in Denmark - no two are alike. Their expressions can mean many things… are they nervous? Tired? Excited?
Originally thrown in low-fire earthenware clay, Lavas have recently switched to stoneware clays. The switch in clay allows us to obtain a more rustic, ceramic feel with thicker and more interesting glazes.
The stoneware clays are imported from England, Germany and the Netherlands depending on texture and look.
Size: about 13-15 x 9-10 cm tall (each piece is unique)
Care: Hand wash with hot water and soap (stoneware versions)
