Kate Welton River Stoneware Bud Vase
A beautifully round bud vase by Kate Welton, with gently curving sides, and a neck to hold flower stems.
The top part of this vase is left un-adorned with slip, the natural colour of the clay providing a soft contrast to the panel of colour below. This panel is left unglazed, but polished.
The sweeping marks on the surface of this vase are inspired by a local river in Norfolk. Transferred to the clay quickly and spontaneously, they reference the constant state of flux of the river, always moving and changing with the seasons.
Every piece is made on the potter’s wheel using stoneware clay. The decoration is applied using coloured slips which are then layered on to the clay’s surface using techniques such as stencilling, printing and resist to create the lines, circles and brush-marks. They are then dried, glazed and fired.
Dimensions: given as a guide only; pieces may vary slightly in size due to the handmade nature of the item
