Patrice Coral Collage Organic Vase

550.00

This one of a kind coastal inspired vase is both decorative and functional. It is inspired by the various patterns textures and movement discovered along the shore during Tavill's seaside travels. Its coral-like 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 the exterior to create a white skin and then she hand textures the surface with various tools. 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 texture. The first firing secures the carving and texture and then Tavill coats the interior with clear glaze and delicately sprinkles portions of the exterior texture with the same clear glaze using a needle bulb tool to 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).

This piece is 10 1/2" tall x 6 1/2" wide.
