Douglas Black’s works take functional tableware and transform them to a new dimension of unique creativity. The galactic patterns are created as individual universes contained in each piece, transforming the experience of the user. Different firings may create different effects in the transparent blue that he often uses, making each piece completely unique, requiring careful examination of the artwork as the food or beverage that it is being used for is consumed.
