Eric Moss’ apple-sized ceramic sculptures are finished with simple, bold geometric designs that he creates using a sprayed glaze over tape or paper resist patterns.

Explaining what happens during this process Moss says “After spraying, the paper is removed to leave a crisp-edged unglazed area which, after raku firing, becomes a black pattern through the glazed area.”
The wheel-thrown, raku-fired, two-part nested sculptures conjure up images of seed pods, jet engines, fossils and ringed planets.
“I enjoy this play between the fragility of the pot and the durability of its composition.” Eric Moss
