Sculpted Pristine Vase with Flowing Edges
Created by Jean Elton
This is an original that 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, which often cannot be otherwise 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, then the artist hand applies a transparent glaze inside the vessel, leaving its exterior unglazed. The object emerges from the second firing, which requires approximately 2100 degrees F, in its final form: a lightweight (approximately 4 pounds) yet sturdy vessel that can be used as an elegant vase or as a purely decorative work of ceramic art. The unique serial number found on the bottom of the piece is reflected on the certificate of authenticity provided.
