small deep sea vase
£159.00 PRODUCT CODE:TW92Y1036
This slab-built earthenware vase is unusually both smoke-fired, yet able to hold water. This is achieved with a combination of strong brush strokes and finely sprayed slip, finished by smoke firing the high fired surface.
About this maker
Tessa trained in Ceramics at Goldsmiths College, London 1981-84. On leaving college she developed a method of sawdust firing for surfaces that were high fired and internally glazed making it possible for them to hold water. Her vessel ranges are both hand-built and slip-cast, sculptural in form but always functional.
