An octagonal porcelain vase showing colour variations reflecting the melting flow of the copper red glaze into the texture marks, into the seal imprint and at the mouth where the glaze has thinned and is transparent white. The surface marks were made by rolling the porcelain on a heavily textured fabric.
This hand-built porcelain vase will provide a strong focal point in your home. Good for showing off fresh or dried flowers or simply display just on its own and enjoy its calming influence..
The vase was made with a UK porcelain and after biscuit firing the glaze was applied in three layers. Finally the piece was fired to 1300C. This makes it impermeable and very durable.
- All of my work is one-of- a-kind and made by hand.
- As with all my pottery, items are food, oven, microwave, and dishwasher safe.
- The vase measures approximately 21cm tall and 8cm wide.
- The bottom is impressed with my seal, the letter P, and its identity number 9734.
My interest in vases relates to displaying arrangements of flowers or other material, and to their sculptural potential. I enjoy creating a vessel that can appeal through its sculptural form, surface treatment and colour. This may be supplemented, as with this vase, by employing an artists seal like those used on Oriental water-colours or calligraphy. A fabric textures provides channels for the graphic flow of the melting glaze. The glaze is transparent at the mouth and allows the underlying porcelain to be seen and further down where the glaze is thicker there is a stronger red colour or a red-blue flambe. Although this octagonal vase works as a sculptural object it can also be a functional vessel and help the owner to create an original and eye-catching display.
