The designer wanted to turn her sculptures into a functional object whilst keeping the primary element: the form. The Lava vase serves as a representation of this form - a natural power that is a force of its own. Each unique coil built vase illustrates these patterns in nature which we cannot replicate. My work has a sensory aim - using familiar natural shapes to create feelings of comfort/pleasure. Lava is an all-consuming natural phenomenon - one that is a threat but one that we can derive aesthetic pleasure from also. This vase is an exploration of this experience.
The stoneware is glazed watertight; to clean it, please hand wash only.
