Woven Plate


Ceramic Sculpture
by Jan Schachter

5″H, 13″D

This piece was woven from extruded coils of a black stoneware clay, which was then altered to create the plate form. I sprinkled wood ashes on the surface and also fired it in a wood kiln. It can be displayed or used on a horizontal surface, but is also wired so it can hang on a wall.


“I enjoy making pots for everyday use; each is a subtle variation of a form – usually thrown in a series. I am a perfectionist (as much as the process allows) and am constantly in search of the perfect surface and ideal form while striving to create pots that have life and vitality. I have a casserole included in the permanent collection of the Renwick Gallery, National Museum of American Art, Smithsonian Institution, Washington, DC.”
