Large Oval CERAMIC with gold interior by Cristina Salusti cs-cm6
L 21 in. D 14 in. H 7 in.
Beginning with a ball of clay, Cristina Salusti pinches it into vessels and textures them with stone fragments. After multiple firing it is finally lustered with 22K gold. Its volcanic-like outer wall seems protective of its precious gold center which is luminescent. Is seems that there is a light source within. In fact the vessel attracts and contains ambient light conveying a spiritual presence. Each piece is unique.
