ceramic Matisse vase 39 x 9 x 21 cms. 2k

Description

Totally inspired by Matisse’s painting, The Red Studio, this is a touch of the Mediterranean in your home – bold red and green colours applied with confident brushstrokes depicting an interior with glimpses of a garden outside. A stoneware vase slab rolled and glaze fired which will sit attractively in any home.

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.
