Andrei Davidoff – 'Under the Grass'
Taking inspiration from the whiskey jugs of North Carolina as well as Korean Punch'ong decoration and Onggi ware, this work shows an emphasis on making and material. 'under the grass' combines elements of botanical decoration with memento mori tropes and is finished with a glaze made from the ash of Snow gums, which surround the studio.
