This stoneware vase is a work of high craftsmanship, of elaborate and careful design in all its details. All stoneware vases or medium-height canisters are unique. I am purposely looking for some special detail to make each piece special in shape, color, texture, etc. I like to play around with the shape of the handles taking inspiration from the vines. Forming visual textures with the mixture of glazes and colors like those I see in fruits and flowers.
It is a medium-height container, appropriately sized for use with flower arrangements. It has a capacity of more than a liter (2 pints) and a size of about 18 cm (c. 7") high by 12 cm (c. 5") in diameter, with handles on both sides always different. The base is unglazed, it is something that is normal for handmade ceramic pieces. This is not a problem since the clay is vitrified and is practically waterproof. It is also polished so cannot affect the surface of the furniture if used properly.
This container is made of stoneware, like the other cups, mugs and tumblers of different sizes, and the stoneware bowls, plates, etc. All made to be used with food found in this store. Porcelain with a normal thickness walls and stoneware are the materials used to manufacture the restaurant and home tableware. That makes them food safe, microwave and dishwasher safe, and resistant to sudden temperature changes. There are other pieces like porcelain bowls or salad bowls that also share these characteristics.
Porcelain is a harder material than stoneware, although it is more delicate to work with. It allows to make thinner walls and can be translucent. This makes it perfect for special pieces and lamps and not so much for everyday use ware as those of stoneware or porcelain with normal thickness walls.
I prepare myself the glazes with high quality industrial raw materials. They have balanced formulas so that they melt properly on the piece in the final firing. Thus they are transformed into colored glass, they become in an inert material that does not be altered with the acids of some foods, nor with sudden changes in temperature, etc. The interior has a glaze formulated to properly blend with the paste of the piece. So no cracking should form.
I have glazed this piece with a glossy black glaze on the upper half and speckled rust red shiny glaze on the bottom half. In the kiln they melt and mix creating unique and unrepeatable effects. Below you can find other pieces that might interest you as well. I select them because they have similar color combinations to make pairs or sets of pieces.
