Multicolored Geometric Palm Vessel II

Ceramic Vessel

Created by Jean Elton
During a walk along the streets of Naples, Florida, the artist found a palm leaf that had fallen to the ground. Having been looking for a longish tray-like vessel, she wondered if this palm leaf could provide not only the inspiration for a new vessel, but the exact texture. It worked! The outside of this elegant vessel has been glazed black so your eye is drawn into the interior patterns on the smooth top surface.

The work is first fired to approximately 1800 degrees F, then decorated by the artist, using underglazes applied with brushes and fine-tipped bottles. The vessel is 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 5 pounds) yet sturdy vessel that can be used as a delightful work of ceramic art.
