Whimsical Fish Vase

Ceramic Vase

(ID: A96079)
Created by Jean Elton
From the whimsical side of Jean Elton! The fun began with the original model for this shape (about 2 feet high), which was turned on a plaster wheel. A casting form was made from this model, enabling the artist to cast the piece without seams, which often cannot otherwise be eradicated from the final form. The resulting shape makes a strong impression, yet is both visually and physically light. The work is fired first 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 gloss glaze. The object emerges from the final firing, which requires approximately 2100 degrees F to take the work to its final form: a lightweight (approximately 7 pounds) yet sturdy vessel that can be used as elegant vase or as a standalone, purely decorative work of ceramic art.
