Gold Urn by David Greer

The Artwork

This stoneware bowl is banded with repeated spiraling forms. With a dark brown glaze, this exterior decoration provides a rhythmic focal point for the gold glazed bowl. The interior of the vessel is glazed with dark blue hue, which contrasts significantly with the bowl's exterior, emphasizing its potential volume.
