Multicolored Sail Vase

Ceramic Vase

(ID: A87590)
Created by Jean Elton
Originally designed using a computerized vector graphics program that balanced the volume on either side of its vertical axis for stability, the pre-model for this piece was created by assembling thin layers of cross sections and then making a plaster model from the resulting laminate. Working plaster molds were then created into which the final object is slip cast, fired once to approximately 1800 degrees F and then hand-decorated by the artist, using underglazes applied with fine-tipped bottles and finished in a spray booth with a transparent matte glaze. The object emerges from the final firing which requires approximately 2100 degrees F to take the work to its final form. Creating this piece requires an overhead crane, but the resulting work is lightweight (approximately 6 pounds).

      Comments about Multicolored Sail Vase:

      My wife and I love this piece. we have it in a high profile location in our home. We are always receiving complements on it. It responds wells to having a spot light on it. Truly unique. We have never seen anything like it. They have a new piece which is modeled after a palm frond. We are looking to collect it as well.
