At 80cm cm high this huge floor standing lidded vessel is the largest handbuilt piece of copper red stoneware Eddie Curtis ever made. Inspired by a visit to the Nagano Mountains, Japan in 2003 the work is part of his Nagano Mountain series which was made in response to the fabulous autumnal colours of the acers at the time. Made around 2005 it is constructed with two enormous stretched slabs of textured clay that have been 'wrapped' around a clay base. It has lived in the Curtis household for many years and we are now favoured with it's presence at Blackmore Gallery. The hand carved handle is flamed torched and burnished plum wood.
