WIP - Floral Carved Vase.jpg

Height - 10 inches,  Diameter - 8 inches,  Under-glaze on White Stoneware

Production Time  - 85 hours

This vase stands unparalleled in it's intricacies and attention to detail.

The entire design is first drawn with a pencil tool on a wheel-thrown and trimmed vessel. The design is then carved into giving a relief texture while the visual language is of a multi-layered web of flowers and leaves peeking from behind each other.

After the first fire, the vase is then hand-painted to make the elements look more accurate in it's colour and shade.

 

Each stroke, each carve, each line flaunts unique treatment as the vase is observed from every angle to be a whole new bouquet arrangement.
