Ceramic with 22 Karat Gold by Cristina Salusti cs-cm1
H 3.5 in. Dm 16.5 in.
Beginning with a ball of clay, Cristina Salusti pinches it into vessels and textures them with stone fragments. After multiple firing it was finally lustered 22K gold. Its volcanic-like outer wall seem almost protective of its precious gold and platinum center. The vessel attracts and contains ambient light which gives it a spiritual presence.
