Description

This classy little vase is has it all a smooth white stoneware vase, an elegant curved shape, with an abstract design based on the poinsettia flower, a flower given traditionally at Christmas, making it the perfect Christmas gift. The abstract pattern within the inner surface contrasts with a more minimal outer surface that is glazed with a textured green celadon glaze that is transparent, growing greener as is reaches the rim.

I threw this vase on the potters wheel, next I turned a neat foot ring on the base and signed the pot 'by les' stamped into the clay. For the pattern I used wax resist, stains and scratched through the coloured slips I painted, all adding interest to the matt surface.
After I fired the vase in my electric kiln at 950 degrees centigrade I dip glaze the pot and fired the vase a second time at a higher stoneware temperature 1240 degrees centigrade.

Vase size: Height 8 cms x 10 cms diameter

The glaze is lead free, dishwasher safe, although handwashing is always the best to prolong the glaze shine.

The vase will be packed very carefully, I will use recycled packaging where ever I am able to. I will post the pot as soon as payment is received.

Thank you for taking a look at my shop.

Inspiration

My love of nature always inspires my creative process. The poinsettia flower has beautiful shaped leaves with knife edge lines contrasting with dark greens and reds which I try to capture an essence in the design I create.
