Lucem Pono by Itherin Lucem Pono by Itherin
This is the interior of one of my Lucem Pono vessels, created during my master project 2010. Materials are porcelain and terracotta mixes.

There is no flash or other light source on the inside. The light is pure daylight shining through the translucent porcelain.

It's a very interesting picture! I didn't read your description immediately, so I could just enjoy the picture without knowing what is was. But I like it even better now that I know it's a vase :D Wonderful work :)

I've just spent the last five minutes staring at this, trying to figure out what makes it so interesting and appealing. I still have no idea. Texture and warmth, I think. Maybe the repetition of shapes. In any case, even if I can't articulate it, I like it a lot :).

Thank you very much :thanks:
It is very interesting, isn't it. The porcelain creates a very warm glow. I find it very fascinating.
I really like the repetition too, and it is very soothing and almost a bit therapeutic building these vessels. They almost remind me of paper. It's something about the combination of the wafer thin clay and the fingerprint texture. The colours were quite surprising when I first discovered them. With terracotta being red, I assumed that I might get a brownish, or pink hue, so you can imagine my surprise when I ended up with a scale of greys!

I actually thought it was paper when I first saw it. The shades of grey are kind of surprising in this context (I didn't realize it was terracotta) but it's a very warm, comforting combination.

Indeed :aww: I have a whole range of colours, ranging from 100% porcelain to 100% terracotta. A very subtle palette that I love working with.
