Sculptural birch bark branch vase by ceramic artist David Ernster, with a perched iron-black crow. The matte brushed white slip surface lends itself perfectly to the impression of birch bark, and the David’s skillful brushed black strokes complete the effect. The toasty color of the clay and firing process come through the white slip on this piece, adding to the natural variations and characteristics. Glazed wit h a deep olive interior, this sculptural vase is rustic and playful, as well as a sophisticated piece of artwork.
12 3/4″ tall x 6″ at the widest point
“While in essence I consider myself a sculptor I love to make functional work and sculptural vessel forms. I truly believe in the power of craft to influence our lives for the better.” ~David Ernster
