Unique stoneware vase with clear glaze inside and underglaze decoration outside. 6” tall, 4.5” across widest point, 1” across base.
Designed and made by Alison Owen (Poughkeepsie, NY)
Alison create vases that hover between two and three dimensions. Each vase is made from slab-rolled clay cut into shapes like a dress-maker’s pattern, and pieced together to create forms that are gently dimensional yet invoke the pictorial plane. One or both sides might be decorated with a drawing, painting, or collage depicting relics, rainbows, figures, or flowers drawn in the tradition of the still lifes that so often represent vases themselves.
