A simple minimalist shape vase but with lots of details on them. Hand painted then a beautiful hand carved botanical design decorated the surface all around.
A unique piece which they will make a statement in your living space and never two are the same. I love making vases, it keeps my creativity going and inspiration is never short.
The surface design is inspired in simple patterns that I see in wallpapers, illustrations and fabrics. It was made using a slab building technique with a white warm mid fire clay body stoneware fired to 1220 degrees
As my pieces are 100 % handmade. They may show beautiful imperfections that only a handmade product can achieve. I enjoy the slab building process and create pieces following the Japanese philosophy Wabi -sabi. The characteristic of the Wabi-sabi include asymmetry, simplicity and sometimes roughness depending on the claybody I use. There is a natural appreciation of natural objects and processes.
Measurements: 15 cm (H) x 7.5 cm (W) at the top opening.
- Hand wash preferable
- Dishwasher safe.
Materials: The vases were made with cone 6 stoneware. They are hand carved, hand painted utilising food safe glazes and underglazes.
Sustainability: Alma Terra products are ethically made by me in my backyard studio, I care about the environment and the footprint on earth, I only use Australian raw materials and products instead of flying them form different parts of the world, I support Australian businesses only. I recycle and reuse water from the studio to water the veggie garden right outside my creative space. Every left over of clay is recycled until I collect a sufficient amount to make more ceramic pieces. The kiln is run on solar power to fire my work so I minimise the demand from electricity.
I use new and repurposed cardboard boxes and recyclable and biodegradable packing materials only.
Alma Terra ceramics are produced with passion in North East Victoria in the beautiful Ovens Valley.
