A sophisticated, decorative art piece, and a functional vase for flowers. The artist, Lars Turin, made this wheel-thrown piece using his unique technique of crusting the surface of soft clay with sodium silicate and a torch, and then stretching the still-soft clay to create controlled surface cracking. He then enhances the cracking with various colors and removes it from the smooth, white clay surface to create a dramatic contrast. In this case, the exterior is colored with varying tones of blue, green, and yellow. The interior is glazed with a lovely sky blue. The top of the vase is slightly oval while the bottom is round. Signed by the artist.
