Nelly Vase III
Created by Catherine Satterlee
The wonderful pattern on this large plate came from a rug in the studio of a French artist. The pattern was carefully incised in damp clay and colored with multiple layers of slips, oxides, and stains. Except for a few shapes, the exterior surfaces are not glazed. Inside is a rich dark red-brown satin glaze ensuring a water tight interior for floral arrangements. Hand washing is recommended.
