Aleisa Miksad — Eleni Vessel, 2022

$1,500

Narrow white vessel with complex textural surface.

Aleisa Miksad is a ceramicist from Northern Victoria. Her work walks a line between ancient and contemporary ceramics. Inspired by classical ceramics of the Greeks and Etruscans, these ancient forms are reimagined in writhing coils and spiked collars. Evoking early coil pots (a traditional method of building ceramic vessels, made by building up sides of pots with successive ropes of clay in a circular pattern) Miksad coil-builds her vessels from stoneware and porcelain clay bodies. The form emerges slowly over the course of a few days as she works. Adornments such as spiked collars, lips and ruffled bottoms are added once the vessel is completed. The forms are then bisque fired and sometimes under glazed before the final firing.

Material: Porcelain, white underglaze

Dimensions: approx. 50cm x 40cm
