Description

For those who like visual impact at home, this vase offers a subtle colour combination as well as an intriguing shape whose squiggly outlines both define the borders of the stoneware but also bring the surrounding space into play, the background colours of the space you place the vase in have an influence on the design as much as the gentle green, blue and pinks. Glaze fired at  1275º,  the stoneware vase is robust and will hold its own wherever you put it.

23 h x 36 l x 8  w.

weight 2.2k.

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.
