Fan vases are excellent for display pieces or as receptacles for flower arranging.
Vase number 78 (below) was inspired by an Art Nouveau Fan Vase. It was fired in a wood kiln with shino glaze, picking up the soft red blushed as gifts from the flame. It is also blessed with a network of fine crackles in the glaze.
Vase number 79 was inspired by a Classical Greek Vase, the kind that were so highly valued that they gave them (as the first trophies) to winners of the ancient games at Olympus. This one has a cobalt blue ash glaze and sits, triumphant, on its raised foot.
Both #78 and #79 have very gestural top openings, as seen from above.
