New York based artist, Jeffrey Loura, creates organic elemental vessels. The concentration of his work is the idea of familiarity and opposing concepts. The duality of individualism vs community. Female vs male. Life vs death. He organizes shapes creating tension between the negative and the positive. The rich patina evokes a futuristic past.
Each vessel is made by separate components thrown on a wheel. An application of colored slips and colorants are then added to the surface and burnished giving it a patina. At each firing, the surface is sanded and another colorant is added creating the matte, smooth finish.
