Folded Palladium Metallic Glazed Vase

Ceramic Vessel

Created by Jean Elton
The original model for this shape was turned on a plaster wheel, from which a casting form was made. The casting form is one piece, which enables the final work to be cast without seams. While the clay is still moist, the work is folded by hand to create a sculpted look. The resulting shape makes a strong impression, yet is both visually and physically light.

The work is fired first to approximately 1800 degrees F, then the inside is painted using a black underglaze. The final firing, which requires approximately 2100 degrees F, takes the work to its final form: a lightweight (approximately 7 pounds) yet sturdy vessel that can be used as an elegant vase or as a standalone, purely decorative work of ceramic art. The entire piece is painted with a palladium metallic glaze making this striking piece particularly elegant and almost look like it is folded metal.

The unique serial number found on the bottom of each Jean Elton piece is reflected on the certificate of authenticity provided.
