Medium Vase #4

If this doesn’t remind you of turquoise ocean waves lapping onto a warm sandy beach, nothing will!!  This conical vase has strong rivulets of colour mimicking sea foam, cascading down the vase in waves.  All it’s missing is the bright yellow sun above, but I’m sure a single sunflower stem would complete the look!

This piece is glazed in Aegean Turquoise. It’s a wonderfully flowy glaze that occasionally flows right off the piece!  As it flows it creates lovely rivulets in various shades of vibrant turquoise.  Where it leaves the glaze thin it’s transparent, whereas at the bottom of the flow it leave a thick drip which is rich and bright.  I love the way this works against a tan clay body as the combination is so reminiscent of warm blue seas lapping Sandy beaches on summer holidays!
