Core Formed Vessel, “Jupiter”

jupiter core form vessel

This is the second core formed vessel I made in Laurie Nessel’s workshop at the Mesa Art Center I had an idea of making a vessel that was whorled and striped like the planet Jupiter.  The ivory came out brighter in contrast to the red than I had anticipated, and the eye looks a little creepie than I had anticipated, but it does stand.

When I was cleaning the iron out of this (part of the process) I got a little enthusiastic with my scrubbing and accidentally broke it.   I glued it back together, but it made me afraid of cleaning the other one.
