Large Ceramic bowl with platinum inside by Cristina Salusti.
Beginning with a ball of clay, she pinches it into vessels and textures them with stone fragments. After multiple firing it was finally lustered with a mix of 22K gold and Platinum to tone down the gold. Its volcanic-like outer wall seem almost protective of its precious gold and platinum center. The vessel attracts and contains ambient light which gives it a spiritual presence
