Jaroslav HRUSTALENKO - Ceramic Art

Selected Works

Segmented Form I, carbonized ceramics

In most countries of Central and Eastern Europe, including Hungary and Slovenia, non-glazed wood-fired pottery is traditionally called ‘black’ or ‘smoked’ which also corresponds with the firing process and look of the finished pots.

In the Western part of Ukraine however we rather find so called ‘silver ceramics’. This is due to a unique iridescent silver sheen of the carefully burnished surfaces – a very fine layer of carbonized rather than just reduced clay.
