Title: Winged vessel

Artist: Karen Karnes

Karen Karnes is a modernist and originator of the art pottery movement in the United States. Her pieces are abstract and meant for display but retain an air of functionality. Karnes calls on traditional techniques such as wood and salt firing to finish her wheel-thrown pottery. “Winged Vessel” makes use of the wood firing process to produce a muted and variegated palette.
