Poetic hand sculpted stoneware vase with cobalt stained clay. A decorative piece with an organic texture and exquisitely refined vessel walls crafted by Mélina Schoenborn through the coiling technique. This lightweight vase was subsequently refined with a potter’s rib and scraper, to shave away the walls and make them impressively thin. Melina chooses to leave her finished works bare, without glaze, to celebrate the purity of material and form.
Dimensions: H-18 cm x W-13.5 cm
