Hailstone Pattern Teapot (2019)
Stoneware with glazed interior
12 x 12 x 12 cm

If the famous pottery of Yixing is known as Purple Sand, much of Neely’s work over the last thirty years might be called Black Sand. It relies on the transmutation of metallic oxides in the firing and cooling process. Black serves as perfect complement precious metals, but when he uses silver and gold glaze, it is always in subtle ways, not to dazzle the viewer, but rather to reward close inspection.
