This vase has blue, teal and black porcelain inlaid into white stoneware clay. The front plane incorporates a fine layer of twisted and folded hand-coloured porcelain embedded into the surface, making each piece a one off. This patterning process has gradually developed after becoming fascinated with Nerikomi technique and hand-colouring clay as soon as Emily started working with pottery.
This most recent collection of vases was developed out of a fascination with the interaction of architecture and the natural world; clean lines against organic shapes. The simple slab-built forms contrast with plants and flowers, with the flowers peeking out from behind the vase.
