FOREST VASE CLASSIC 9 INCH
Hand made from porcelain clay. 9.5" X 7"W. Shaped on the potter's wheel before carefully sculpting the original design. The artist, Gail Lundgren, sprays the glazes onto the artwork before kiln firing to 2200 degrees. Signed by the artist.
This classic vase carries itself boldly entirely alone, yet she becomes a stunning backdrop to fresh flowers. Each line is sculpted one at a time with my hand tools. My goal is to have one solid piece of beauty that fools the eye into thinking many pieces were required to make this one vase. I throw each piece of artwork on the potters’ wheel, leaving behind my finger lines inside. The outside of the vase is smoothed and then carefully sculpted to create a trompe l'oeil illusion. I can't tell you how many times people think this is tiny petals added to this structure. I get a kick out that, because I know what I intended did occur. Not to fool people, but to give the owner of this vase a special treat. You will also own a wonderful tactile texture. I wish you could feel it in this website, smooth, ridged, glassy, rough all at once.
