Longnecked Vase with Lacy Rim
Your eyes will tell you this piece is soft knitting but your touch will tell you it’s clay. And they both will be right in a certain sense, because clay doesn’t get knitted, and knitting isn’t usually hard. But here it is: a lovely intricately knit and shaped porcelain long-necked vase with an eight-pointed lacy rim. What’s going on? It starts with a handknit cotton shape which is dipped in liquid porcelain, shaped as it dries and fired to temperature. The cotton burns away, leaving a perfect memory of the knitting. It is light, showing all the handknit details. It is strong because porcelain, contrary to its appearance, is quite dense. What remains is amazement. It has a solid porcelain slab bottom tailored exactly to its stance. See all the photos to enjoy each one of a kind piece. We sometimes have several in this pattern, each one naturally different. Yours will be similar in size and stitch patterning – including the elegantly edged long neck, but will have its own unique charms.
