One-of-a-kind vessel | Signed by the artist
French ceramicist, Karen Swami's work is deeply informed by the natural characteristics of the Earth. The particularity of her work results from the convergence of time-honored techniques from different parts of the world that inspire the artist; the cobalt blue or celadon-green glazes reveal deep layers of nuanced colors and the simple shapes of her works are reminiscent of Asian and Hellenistic ceramics. To create her unique finish, Swami burnishes with an agate stone, they are then bisque-fired, smoked, waxed, then re-worked often with Urushi lacquer and pure gold in the traditional Japanese Kintsugi technique.
