Ceramic artist Eric Roinestad made this one-of-a-kind stoneware vessel while working from his in-home Los Angeles studio during California’s 2020 quarantine. Using a process wherein the work is first wheel-thrown, then meticulously handworked to completion, Roinestad laboriously crafted these pieces. With punctures made by a sharpened dowel and meant to mimic bullet holes and a black (approaching gunmetal) glaze, this work speaks to a moment in the American landscape that is both geographic and historical. A grand departure for the artist, this collection represents a new direction for Roinestad, differing both aesthetically and conceptually from his oeuvre. Creating a limited amount of work annually, Roinestad releases small batches every six to twelve months.
