Heavy Porcelain Vase - Tokyo Street Sketch
My favourite thing to do in Tokyo is just to wander the streets, enjoying little scenes of daily life - sometimes sketching them, sometimes recording them in a photograph. At first they became imaginary plate paintings but finally they are finding their way onto 'real' ceramic forms - this scene from a little street in Setagaya with its leaning post box and crate.
As with most of the things I make, my ceramic offerings retain the look of being handmade and this is a part of their charm. Please make sure you consult the pictures carefully and that you are happy with the piece before purchasing.
Porcelain, chunky slab built vase, sturdy and heavy. Free painted decoration in cobalt oxide, a tiny bit of the faintest red underglaze, a little brown breaking inside the top edge and finished in a clear lead free glaze. Stamped on the rear with the roaring blue bear stamp.
Approximately 11cm high/ 14.5cm wide/ 7.5cm deep.
