This elegant vase was thrown on a wheel using white stoneware clay.
The relief decoration on the exterior was made by carving freehand into a layer of cobalt coloured liquid clay, a technique known as 'sgraffito', making each of Jonquil's stoneware vases entirely unique.
This impressive vase stands at 44cm high and weighs 3.5kg.
It is glazed inside and out and fired to 1260 degrees rendering it entirely watertight. The vase is therefore completely functional as well as being a highly elegant stand-alone ceramic art object.
Commissioning a piece of work is really exciting – it is a chance to have something made especially for you and an opportunity to really engage in the creative process.
Perhaps you need accessories to go with a particular outfit or a piece of furniture to fit a specific space in your home. We can work with you to design something truly unique. You’ll be able to discuss your ideas, likes and dislikes with the Maker and together create a piece of craft, handmade for you.
This is just a first step, so don't worry, there’ll be plenty of chances to discuss details before finalising a commission.
