Description

These are all about the texture of language that envelopes us from the moment that we wake until the last thing we read as we drift into dreams. I’ve been thinking about this fabric- this texture- that wraps around us constantly and wanted to create a visual texture out of language that the glaze would flow in and out of like the play of light on water. It looked pretty neat! Then I took it to the next logical step and deepened the texture so that, almost like Braille, you can feel the texture of the language that you are reading in the tips of your fingers. Much better! But, language without content is another form of garbage so, I went ahead and wrote a piece that, as you follow it in a spiral around the glass, is one continuous stream of consciousness… but (after just a little bit more editing) also offers a new philosophy on each successive line going down the cup. The result is an impossibly light, intricate, complex and engaging object ready for everyday use. They beg to be handled and people can’t help but spend some serious time with them. Choose from 3 colors (kimchee, greenish, and brownish) in the customization option during check out. Dish-washable and microwaveable stoneware. Glasses are 23 oz, 7.5" tall, and 3.5" diameter.

Terra Cottage Ceramics

Greetings! I’m Michael Terra and I’ve been making & selling art since about 1975, in one form or another. My partner, Victoria, and I operate Terra Cottage Ceramics in the Arts District of a riverside town in western Kentucky under the strict supervision of 5 cats. I am a sculptor primarily working in language (but I hang the words on clay so that it is easy for you to take home). Virtually everything I make hides multiple layers and the slower that you look, the more you’ll discover- (kind of like the rest of your life)! Everything from this studio is emotionally engaging and includes free shipping- blessings abound!
