Vase "Yellow Pilgrim" by Matthias Kaiser


"Yellow Pilgrim" 2017 A stoneware ceramic vase by Matthias Kaiser. The body of the vase is a flat disc, made from two large trays that have been joined at the rims. It is supported by an oval foot ring. The shape corresponds to that of traditional pilgrim flasks, but is much larger and has an unusual neck. The neck has been added across, which adds to the Stand-alone sculptural quality of the piece. It is also a functional vessel, however, with an opening at the lowest point of the neck-circle, where it meets the body. Flowers can be arranged in it. The material used in making the piece is an unrefined, buff-colored stoneware clay from the Czech Republic. It has been coated with a yellow porcelain slip and partially dipped in an iron ore glaze. Matthias Kaiser studied at Parsons school of design in NY and at Vienna´s university of applied arts, apprenticed with two Japanese master potters in Seto and Karatsu, he spent a combined 2 years travelling on the Indian subcontinent and for a period of 13 years he was the Akhavan of an Iranian dervish. His vocation remains. To make pots. Matthias Kaiser focus on the inherent qualities of the material and the succession of steps that constitute the process of creation. trying to reveal, not hide, what is there and has been done. and to give respite from the world of contrived concepts and passing excitement. he has always had an affinity to mystery and obsession. The alchemical transformation of earth into stone and glass is full of uncertainties and a neverending source of amazement. by subtracting Industrial processes as far as possible from the refinement of the raw materials and totally from manufacture, the finished pieces retain a heterogenous appearance. They are a sum of parts, with infinite possible combinations of shape and surface, texture and color, weight and size. His pots contain more than a functional and decorative aspect, their poetry lies in the balance of intent and accident as well as in the interplay of physical attributes.
