|In this piece, I investigated ways to interweave Americana and Asian styles of pottery displayed in a way that portrays a lunar eclipse. The Asian set was designed in a contemporary geometric fashion and the handle imitates the stalk of bamboo that emphasizes the Asian origin. This set is glаzed in a traditional Western Buttermilk glaze that I mixed, shadowed by Shoji Hamada's Tenmoku glaze. The Americana set was designed in a traditional style and glazed in a renowned Asian glaze, Tenmoku with Buttermilk splatters. To accentuate the contrast, The Asian set sits on a Maple wood, the Americana set sits on Black Walnut and the earth in between is Cherry wood.
