Landscape vase

£220.00

Unique handmade ceramic landscape vase 46 x 9 x 28 cms  2.7k

Sold By: Peter Arscott

Description

Bring the outdoor into your home. A unique hand-built vase made from stoneware clay and glaze-fired at 1275 degrees, the brush marks allude to natural shapes and colours, landscapes or gardens. Because of the kiln firing process the vase can withstand most temperatures and is frost proof, though it is best kept indoors for its visual impact. The reverse side of the vase depicts a nightscape in blues. Two paintings in one.

About the Maker:

Peter Arscott is a painter and ceramicist who uses either grogged porcelain or stoneware glaze-fired to nearly thirteen hundred degrees. Before this happens, he bisque-fires his pieces to a thousand degrees and then paints oxides and stains on them before dipping them in a transparent glaze. Everything is made by hand or on a slab roller, he does not use a wheel, and little planning goes into the shapes or the colours – cutting out and joining pieces and fragments as the mood takes him, or brushing on certain colours because he has seen a Paul Klee painting or been on a walk in Wales. As a result of this approach, he does not make things twice, and though you can put flowers in his vases he himself is not interested in function and is more interested in playing with form and allowing the pieces to work as paintings.
