Agateware Tabletop Bottle Vase in Red Iron Oxide Brown & White
A refined yet organic vase for the tabletop or mantle place. This vase is a beautiful addition to any home.
Meant to hold a single flower or weed, yet strong enough to stand out on its own.
Approximately 4" x 8.5" x 4"
My agateware collection is my most direct reference to earth these pots came from and depending on the colors used, takes on an extraterrestrial quality.
Each pot is made from multiple pieces of hand stained porcelain, prearranged in a striated pattern and then thrown and trimmed on the potter's wheel. Some pots are faceted on the wheel with a cheese slicer or later on in the process with a sure form (think cheese grater) disrupting the pattern while also giving your hands places to explore and revisit with each use.
The pots are obsessively sanded, first at the bisque stage and then again after they come out of the high fire. The result is a surface that looks and feels like a river stone. These pots are meant to be held and maybe even cherished.
