Leighan Thomas is a contemporary potter based in Oxfordshire. Her approach to making reflects her tastes in quietly muted, simply functional pieces. An exploration into clay makes Leighan's work ever playful with a grown up aesthetic. Raw earthiness meets smooth lively glazes in an amalgamation of process and ideas.
This is a beautiful Black Vessel with a smooth and rough surface. The lower part of the piece has a scratched texture that reveals a contrasting between the raw clay and the glaze. The upper of the vase retains a solid rich black covering which will react to different light sources. In a warmer setting it will appear deeper in it's black, whereas a cooler natural light will bring out a touch of navy.
A classy vessel for display.
