“Tabby Cat” – Ceramic Vase

Amy Golstein-Rice

$186.00

Ceramic cat balancing a small bowl on it’s head with a raised arm that can hold a few flowers.  Amy Golstein-Rice creates this whimsical bud vase by altering wheel-thrown shapes and adding hand-built pieces to create the animal form.  Sculpting is done almost entirely by hand, using modest tools.  Surface decoration is achieved when textural marks are infused with layers of engobe, slip and underglaze.

Description

“I see clay as inventive. It’s a rich medium that offers a generous and tireless play of possibilities. Clay allows expression of the whimsical and the symbolic, sometimes simultaneously.”

Amy Goldstein-Rice is drawn to the idea of animal as messenger, interweaving her ideals about her life with classical folk tales and animal imagery of the Native Americans. The animals become talismans that represent or tell a story of some little obsession, vivid dream, or concerns of the world–with a grain of satire. This has been a starting point.
