ABOUT THE ARTIST:
GINA MARS is a potter and sculptor based in Huntington, NY.
Known worldwide for her raku style and her exquisite glazes fired in her immense, gas kiln and multiple size Raku kilns. In this body of work, Ritual Vessels, each piece is single fired and removed from the kiln at 2000 degrees and placed in a pit in the ground and covered by a container. Inside the can a violent chemical change takes place as the piece vies for oxygen, and the colors and crackles emerge, resulting in a collection where no two pieces are alike.
