Untitled Lidded Vessel

  • John Mascoll, Untitled Lidded Vessel, 2016, citrus, Smithsonian American Art Museum, Gift of Jeffrey Bernstein, M.D. and Judith Chernoff, M.D., 2021.66.26

I try to create objects that showcase the beauty of wood through different shapes, finishes, and surfaces. Sometimes this is experienced by allowing the material to be the dominant voice. In other instances, the material (wood) is worked to accent its character. This may take the form of carving, burning, or coloring … all in an effort to create an object that appeals to the eye and tactile senses.” —John Mascoll
