A bold, patterned handmade vase, in which the flowers sit behind a flat geometric plane.

 

These work perfectly with a single stem, a small posy of flowers, or as a stand alone piece. This collection of vases was developed out of a fascination with the interaction of architecture and the natural world; clean lines against organic shapes.

 

The simple slab-built forms contrast with plants and flowers, with the flowers peeking out from behind the vase. The front plane incorporates a fine layer of twisted and folded hand-coloured porcelain embedded into the surface, making each peice a one-off. This patterning process has gradually developed after becoming fascinated with traditional Nerikomi technique and hand-colouring clay as soon as I started working with pottery. 

 

This vase has blue, black and teal hand-coloured porcelain, into white stoneware clay.

 

All of my work is carefully hand built in my studio in East Oxford. Each vase is fired twice at a high temperature. After firing, the outside is polished by hand to create a smooth surface. The inside is glazed with a lovely matte grey glaze.

 

Approx. dimensions:

Front: Height – 9 cm

Width – 9 cm

 

Vase section:

Height: 6 cm

Internal Depth: 2.5 cm

 

Each vase is made carefully by hand which means that they are all unique pieces.

 

It is important to me as a maker to consider the environmental impact of my work. This is an ongoing process and I am always looking for new ways to reduce the impact of my work. When sending out my work, all packaging is plastic -free. You can read more about sustainability in my studio here
