Ceramic rainbow 2020 vase with leaf & cow parsley design by Stephanie Beasley
A beautiful ceramic vase which has been hand thrown on the wheel giving a simple elegance to the design, and an individuality to the final finished piece. The vase is thrown using white earthenware clay, leaves are then pressed into the surface along with hand drawn rainbows and stamped 2020 to give a three-dimensional relief before glazing. Stephanie uses translucent colour glazes, which allow the base white to show through but still give a real vibrance to the finished piece.
In many countries and cultures rainbows are seen as a symbol of hope, appearing as perfect arcs often during a rainstorm when the sun shines onto water droplets, shattering its white light into an array of brilliant colours. In 2020 with the Coronavirus pandemic they have taken on new meanings for many people and have become a symbol of thanks to those that have carried on working while many stayed at home.
The techniques used to make and decorate this vase ensures not two are ever exactly alike, a fabulous unique piece from a collection that will only be produced during 2020.
