Rainbow Vase

  • $80.00
Measurements: 6.75 x 5" at its widest, 1.25" opening. Using the clay as a canvas, Colleen hand paints richly layered polychrome patterns with porcelain slip, under glaze and wax. Her hand built pottery is inspired by vibrant textile patterns and the unique shapes and textures in vintage glassware. Crafting from custom made plaster press molds and soft clay slabs, she designs one-of-a-kind dishes durable enough for everyday use. An opaque layer of porcelain slip creates a blank canvas for layering wax, colored slip and underglazes. The rich brown clay beneath is revealed when she draws the final outlines using a technique known as sgraffito. The resulting dish is pure joy empty or filled.
