A labour of love, this vase has been slowly pinched into this organic form, with its design naturally dictated by the clay.
It is hand-built from a high-quality, warm-coloured stoneware crank clay with a strong textured body, for a sandy look and feel. The Transparent glaze is applied inside and outside, so the vase is waterproof and can hold fresh flowers as well as dried ones.
I like it on its own too, almost like a sculpture.
Approximate size: height 19 cm, diameter 8.50 cm at the top, 13 cm at the base
Each piece is handmade and therefore different. These dimensions are provided as a guide, on an indicative basis. They will most certainly vary slightly from one piece to the other.
The glaze used is food-safe and will vary slightly from one piece to the other, according to how it was brought to life in the kiln - that's the beauty of this process.
Each piece has its own character, with beautiful imperfections, as they are all hand-built in my Madrid studio, before going through two high-temperature kiln firings.
Ceramics shouldn't be exposed to rapid temperature changes. Use in microwaves is not recommended.
