Gold and Platinum Vessel by ©Cristina Salusti

L 9 in. (23 cm) D 7 in. (18 cm) H 5.5 in. (14 cm)

This vessel was created by Cristina Salusti. Beginning with a ball of clay, she pinches it into vessels and textures them with stone fragments. After multiple firing it was finally lustered with a mix of 22K gold and Platinum to tone down the 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.
