Vase with Appliquéd and Colored Leaf Label


Your eyes will tell you this piece is soft knitting but your touch will tell you it’s ceramic. And they both will be right, because clay doesn’t get knitted, and knitting isn’t usually hard. But here it is: a lovely knit, and gently shaped porcelain vase with an applied and underglazed painted leaf label. How? It starts with a handknit cotton design which is dipped in liquid porcelain, shaped as it dries and fired to temperature. The cotton burns away, leaving a 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 the amazement. The porcelain label is hand painted with colored and fired-on underglazes in a single leaf motif. The bottom is a custom fitted and signed porcelain slab. See all the photos to enjoy this one of a kind piece.
