Magnolia Vase II
Created by Whitney Smith
This is a wheel-thrown and altered red stoneware ceramic vase. It features a design of blooming white magnolia branches on both sides with a lovely background of subtle silvery gray. Inspired by chinoiserie wallpaper, this piece has an antiqued look and patina. The magnolias are painted on with white underglaze, and then their petals are carved, allowing the rich, reddish-brown clay to shine through. Each piece is unique and will vary.
