Melissa Mod Texture Vase

420.00

This one of a kind mod inspired vase is both decorative and functional. It is inspired by  contemporary abstract geometric design. Its texture is handmade through a series of creative processes in the artist's ceramic studio. The artist throws sandy stoneware clay on the pottery wheel, alters the form and later carves and designs the pattern. Porcelain slip is added to create a white skin and then she hand textures the surface with various tools. Texture and a signature stamp is impressed into the recessed foot upon completion during the  greenware stage. The piece is substantial in weight due to the necessity for thickness to achieve such carving and texture. The first firing secures the carving and texture and then Tavill coats the interior and the carved recesses with clear glaze and delicately sprinkles portions of the exterior texture with the same clear glaze, creating a subtle glisten upon observation. The final firing takes the kiln to over 2185 degrees as the clay is fully vitrified (no longer porous).
