Pot, entitled Black Basalt Vessel, by Tony Franks
Add to album

This ceramic pot, entitled 'Black Basalt Vessel', was made of black basalt clay by the Scottish artist Tony Franks in 1982.

The vessel was made in two back-to-back moulded slabs, with diagonal stripes sandblasted to expose white granules.

During the 1980s the Scottish Development Agency purchased a number of hand-crafted items for its Scottish Crafts Collection. The aim of the collection was to inform the public of craft production in Scotland through touring exhibitions and education programmes. When the Scottish Craft Council was wound up, the collection was transferred to the National Museums of Scotland.
