The Craftsman Vase was inspired by the Arts and Crafts Movement and the pottery of that era. However, the more I create in this style, the more I see Elven influence.
I crafted this piece on the potters wheel striving for an elegant curve in the form. I hand-carved the tulips and created a relief below to catch the flowing, shimmering, green crystal glaze. This glaze continues to surprise me as it is never the same on each piece. The exact shade of green, the crystals, the undulation of glossy and matte surfaces are an expression of the unique craftsmanship and conditions of the kiln that day.
