Handbuilt Hummingbird Vase
It always feels like Spring has arrived when we see these delightful creatures return. Jennifer's Hummingbird vase is created by carving the bird's image into the clay; this is called sgraffito. The vase is slab built with a folded seam down the back, satin underglaze and shiny sky blue, green and reddish orange glazes accented with black outlines for this lively bird and the 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.
Vase measures approx 9.5" tall x 3.5" wide.
Perfect for arrangements and a wonderful gift for a bird lover!
