This stoneware bowl was shaped on a potter’s wheel then embossed while still damp using handmade tools carved from wood or bamboo. The premise of Thierry Luang-Rath’s work is: no addition, no removal, no trace, a job done with the bare eye. The creation of the bowl required a few thousand operations over several embossed levels. The interior of the bowl, formed as a result of embossing the exterior, is highlighted with an enamel coat. It contrasts with the exterior that has been left raw.
