Vignette of Three Metallic Tall Vases

Ceramic Vase

Created by Jean Elton
The original models for this shape were turned on a plaster wheel, from which casting forms were made. The casting form is one piece which enables the final work to be cast without seams, which often cannot be otherwise eradicated from the final form. The resulting shape makes a strong impressions, yet is visually and physically light.

The works are fired first to approximately 1800 degrees F, then a metallic glaze was applied. The interior and exterior are both finished with a brassy glaze.

The objects emerge from the second firing, which requires approximately 2100 degrees F. In its final form, it is a lightweight (approximately 4 pounds each) yet sturdy vessel. Not food safe.
