The Trilobite Vase is a coil-built sculptural vase wedged through with a soft, reactive siltstone collected from Scotland's Jurrassic coastline whilst beachcombing in 2021.
As it melts in the heat of the kiln, the siltstone pushes its' way through the clay body during the glaze firing, creating a primordial texture that is very satisfying to run your fingers over. The form of each vase in the series is inspired by Trilobite fossils and prehistoric creatures to complement the history of the rock wedged through the clay. The inside of the vase is glazed with a tin-white glaze whilst the exterior is left raw to highlight the raw beauty of the materials used.
