This Teardrop Oval Lace White Vessel is a unique medium size contemporary modern ceramic object by Californian artist Lynne Meade. It is wheel thrown, hand pierced and has a smooth white satin glaze. Everything is done by eye, without molds or templates. She keeps to a simple color palette to avoid the toxic metals in many clay colorants and to let the intricate design speak for itself. The straight lines and undulating curves in architecture and nature imbue her organic, geometric forms.
The symmetry and dynamic patterns of Juan Quezada, the master potter of Mata Ortiz, inspire her. The patterns in her ceramics tell stories that unfold as a viewer turns a piece. Piercing a vessel over days creates a peaceful, meditative space that becomes embodied in the work. Her mid-century modern pierced collection explores the play of light and shadow, transparency and inner space, and complements any urban, contemporary or transitional space.
