Title: “Puia Pareidolia Tall Mini in Metallic Rau Leaf”, Earthenware fired NZ black clay with copper glaze over real NZ leaf imprints.
by Karen Wilde, 2022.
Size: 9x4cm

Pareidolia is the ability to see faces or familiar objects/patterns in unrelated objects. Once viewed as a form of Psychosis, now seen as a form of creativity.

Experimental processes of including both inorganic and natural organic materials to the clay body, glazes and firing process result in every piece displaying unique surface textures. This multi-layered object depicts dark metallic gunmetal/copper glaze and detailed leaf imprints.

Inspired by Aotearoa New Zealand’s native bush and snow-capped volcanic mountains. Each piece in this series is handbuilt from layers of clay and original in both shape and finish. Can be used as an incense burner, baseless mini flower vase or mini pot cover.
