Kratka is part of Philip Cornelius’s trademark “thinware” pottery. He began making pots in this style in 1971 when he discovered that he could mold various forms using the thin piece of clay that remained on his wheel after he threw a pot. Cornelius was inspired to mold teapots that challenged traditional forms, and to show that these could be produced in a variety of ways. Built up from slabs of clay, his pieces exist more as sculptures than functional vessels.
