About the Work
Whanganui-based Rick Rudd is one of New Zealand's pre-eminent potters, and this work is an example of his exploration into functional extremes of a vessel - here, a teapot, signalled by a spout and a handle, becomes a flat puddle of lava-like texture. Seeing Rick's dedication to New Zealand pottery, when we have worked together on projects to support the museum he founded (Quartz, Museum of Studio Ceramics), has been both humbling and uplifting.

Ceramic wide flat pouring vessel with spout to the right (as observed). Putty coloured ceramic covered in a solid black glaze. Surface of object covered in different sized nodules to give a bumpy texture. Small holes, possibly air, in some of the nodules. Handle positioned in the centre of the top running across the vessel from left to right. On the underneath of the object there is a rim of unglazed putty coloured material. A sticker with "28" is attached to the base.
