I played with the shape of this piece by putting a green border at the bottom.
The spear shapes were derived from Modernist Scandinavian ceramics. The reason why they are round instead of the flattened oval like the Twist vases, is that the models were turned on a lathe.
The painting technique is a combination of colour washes, resist, and black outline. With these vases I use ‘vine’ like plants such as Honesty and Chillies that complement their shape.
