Long oval vessel/centerpiece made of ceramic and gold. Beginning with a ball of clay, Salusti pinches it into the desired shape of her vessels and textures them with stone fragments. After multiple firings, they are glazed and/or lustered in the interior. Its volcanic-like rough exterior contrasts with the smoothness of the inside. Lead free. Signed and dated.
