DescriptionThis hollow-formed and biomorphically-shaped sculpture has two types of glazes and decorative effects. The bottom of the piece is deep orange-red and has a sandy-textured, crackled matte glaze. At the very top, there is a high gloss shallow opening (as if it has deformed lips) in red, spotted yellow and brown, and green.
