Larinda Coral Texture Box with Gold Nugget

Ceramic Box

Created by Judi Tavill
This creamy white, coastal-inspired, low, round-lidded box is both decorative and functional. It is inspired by coral textures discovered along the shore during Tavill's seaside travels.

The artist throws sandy stoneware clay on the pottery wheel, alters the form, and later creates the gallery, lid, and nugget. Porcelain slip is added to create a white skin, and then she hand textures the surface with various tools. Texture and a signature stamp is impressed into the recessed foot upon completion during the greenware stage. The first firing secures the carving and texture, and then Tavill coats the interior with clear glaze and delicately sprinkles portions of the exterior texture with the same clear glaze, creating a subtle glisten upon observation. The glaze firing takes the kiln to over 2185 degrees as the clay is fully vitrified (no longer porous). After cooling, Tavill applies a 22 kt gold luster to the nugget knob and the interior dot. The piece is then fired again for the gold luster to be adhered.

Please be advised, gold luster is delicate and should be treated as such.
