Hand thrown on my traditional Leach kick wheel with a carved repeat leaf pattern and pierced diamonds. For added texture I have added sprigs from a favourite late aunt’s vintage buttons onto the leaves.The vase has been dipped in a runny aqua glaze and fired to high earthernware temperatures.Obviously this vase couldn’t hold water but it does look very pretty with small fairy lights in it as the cut out shapes throw out shadows.Measuring 14.5cm tall and 11.5cm around its belly.Sold as part of my Artist Support Pledge which is artist Matthew Burrow’s idea on Instagram to help artists who, because of the current pandemic, have had their normal avenues of sales curtailed. Works are offered for no more than £200 and, for every £1000 worth of sales, the artist pledges to buy work for £200 from another artist.
