*Nearly, but not quite - this vase is a functional second* The front plane has warped a little more that I'd expected, but still a beatiful vase.  This does not affect the functionality of the vase.

 

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 hand-coloured stoneware, and white stoneware inlaid into speckled 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 clear, non-toxic glaze.

 

Approx. dimensions:

 

Front:

Height – 9 cm

Width – 9 cm

 

Vase section:

Height: 6 cm

Internal Depth: 2.5 cm

 

Each piece is made by hand which means that they are all individual.

 

It is important to me as a maker to consider the environmental impact of my work. I love that clay is a natural material, and make sure to seek out sustainable products for use in the studio. 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.
