A silver necklace was the inspiration for this piece. After forming the bottle with light brown stoneware, the artist covered the surface with black underglaze, incised the chain motif, and then carved away the background. A light application of white slip on the background and a thin coating of transparent green glaze completed the vase. There is a lovely mottled rust-brown-black glaze on the inside, ensuring a water tight interior surface.
