This earthenware vase was inspired by a traditional, Korean technique of inlaying slip into incised decoration. The pot was made by throwing and coiling the form, then it was squared off using a wooden paddle. When the clay had become stiff, a sgraffito tool was used to inscribe the fine lines. White liquid clay was then painted on and left to dry, then finally this was painstakingly scraped off to reveal the pattern. The white slip was left on at the bottom to provide a wonderful contrast.
Please note that this vase is non-functional in the sense that it isn't waterproof. It is mainly a decorative piece, but could be used to display dried flowers.
The piece measures approx 5 inches tall by 3.25 inches wide at the base. Mark Smalley's personal seal has been applied to the base.
