"In Japan [1958-1960], Rothman also discovered beautiful color effects produced by sand on clay slabs fired in large wood-burning kilns. He returned to Otis in 1960 and developed a technique, seen in Sky Pot, 1960, which achieved a similar range of color. Rothman recalls that he mixed sand with colored oxides on a piece of paper, then rolled the clay onto the paper, transferring the image onto a vessel form...The abstract imagery, evoking clouds, points to his interest in nature, which was strengthened during his stay in Japan."
(Mary Davis MacNaughton, Revolution in Clay, 1994, pg. 66)
Sand, stain, cone 10 fired stoneware; hand and slab formed.
Rough, flattened roundish object on tall, cylindrical foot; with colored sand glazes (green, yellow, pink and blue). The artist drew upon the piece with sand and stain and no frit. The design was formed on a flat piece of paper and the clay was rolled onto it, to transfer the design onto the surface.
