Artist's Statement: This piece is hand built porcelain with the use of slip-casting for the main body (from a custom made plaster mold) and a slab rolled neck/spout that had been impressed with a patterned stamp. The spout/neck portion of the vase was glazed with shino (dipping method) and the body portion was dipped in a flashing slip; wood ash was sifted over the upper portion of the vase.
