Our red black spiral bud vase spirals from top to bottom. The glaze creates a unique gradient that switches back and forth between the two colors. A perfect rustic red vase for indoors or out.
Handmade in San Francisco California.
Oven, Microwave, and Dishwasher safe.
The red black spiral bud vase is hand thrown on the wheel. After trimming the leather hard piece I carefully carved the exterior to create a look of constant movement. These pieces I typically leave thick so that a good amount of contrast can be created when I shape and form the texture of the piece. For the rustic red vase I take a triangular shape out of the exterior to create ridges that suite the overall shape of the piece. For the glaze, the gradient look is a result of the glaze, clay body, and reaction of the two on different surfaces. If the red black spiral bud vase were smooth the glaze would have come out completely different. As a result the gradient effect makes this piece one of a kind.
