Hand-Textured Box in Raw Brown Clay with Orange Glazed Interior and Lid



Hand built ceramic box. Subtly hand-textured clay box with a matching lid. The bare clay exterior highlights the handmade texture while an interior glaze surprises and shines. Very Japanese in design and attitude: quiet yet strong. Beautiful architectural feet give lift and lightness, creating negative space and elegance. The exterior is bare deep brown clay, but the interior color choices abound. It has the feel of a funerary urn, quiet and restful and could be made for such. It could also hold your favorite cactus or succulent. Three choices of finials available for urns. Fully handmade in ceramic stoneware. Artist's signature chop on the bottom. Sponge clean.

Customization Options

Customers can choose from a variety of interior glaze colors. Finials for the top are also available.

About The Maker

Helena Starcevic Ceramics produces work that straddles the line between fine and decorative art. Each piece is one of a kind, hand-built entirely by the artist in her New York studio.   Taking inspiration from the natural world, Ms. Starcevic's work includes references to the stark beauty of the desert, prehistoric cave paintings, and the human form (within and without). Everything is filtered through Ms. Starcevic’s own singular aesthetic, at once quiet yet strong, meditative, and beautiful. Pieces are made in different clays and finishes, and at different scales. Groupings are available. Helena Starcevic’s ceramic pieces are held in private collections across the US and Europe. She has held numerous residencies including one at the Museum of Art and Design in New York City.
