TEGAN EMERSON Washed Coral Candleholder
Large sand glazed Coral candlestick holder.
Handbuilt with stoneware clay and individually textured.
Made in Berlin.
With a background in archives and fine arts, Berlin-based Australian artist Tegan Emerson draws upon both to create ceramic forms that explore our dwelling in nature and time.
Luxuriously tactile, with textures reminiscent of corals and moonscapes, these forms inhabit a realm somewhere over the Mediterranean Sea. Hovering between unknown aquatic depths and the gravitational pull of the moon of Atlantis and tidal shifts serve as an inspiration for these ceremonial forms.
