Now Available! Shop Now at MyAmericanCrafts for this nature-inspired Birches & Red Birds Vase handbuilt by ceramic artist Jen Stas.
Black & White birch tree trunks stand out against a natural brown background while stylized red birds perch here and there on this handcrafted vase. The image is created by carving the tree & bird images into the clay in a classic process called sgraffito. The vase is slab built with a folded seam down the back with the glazes accented by black outlines for the images and deep blue rim and lining of the vase.
Jennifer, a full-time potter in Wake Forest, NC., creates a marriage between aesthetics and function, through distinctive use of color and form. Starting with a practical and useful form, the pottery becomes a functional palette for layers of colorants and carving. Finding inspiration in the endless imagery of the mountains and coasts of North Carolina, her pottery reflects it's vibrant colors with the earthy brown of the clay and the contrast of mattes and velvets against shiny and hard surfaces.
The vase measures approx 9.5" tall x 3.5" wide.
Perfect for arrangements and a wonderful gift for a bird lover!
