Ceramic Vase

Created by Susan Wills
Rated 5 based on 2 customer reviews
This contemporary stoneware basket is impressed using the artist's favorite stamps, sticks, vintage gear, and a high fire decal or two. The top and bottom sections are decorated in a vivid red, the middle section remains bare and is adorned with bold markings, black and white decals, and a detail of red glaze. The entire piece is rubbed with dark oxides to accent impressed textures. Each vessel is fired twice, first to temper the clay for glazing, and a second firing to over 2300F. The inside of the vessel is fully glazed, will hold water, and can be used as a vase. The sturdy hand tied rattan handle is approximately 11" wide on this piece. The basket is signed on the bottom.
