Inspired by the tree-bound stone ruins of Kadish Tolesa, one of the Ages of Uru, this decorative piece is hand-carved and -pierced from a wheel-thrown clay cylinder, and fired without glaze to allow the texture of the clay and carving to take focus.
Sounds pretentious! Actually, I spent a few days carving this one out without a real plan or pattern, so it's kind of rough. If I'd had more time I would have done something interesting with the inside of it as well. It's heavily influenced by Stephen Martinere's gorgeous concept art for Uru: Ages Beyond Myst, and by the line-of-sight puzzle of the Age.
This is one of a set of three Uru-inspired ceramic vessels. Hopefully I will get the piece representing Teledahn submitted soon. The piece representing Eder Kemo is here: [link]
