medium vase – pink grapefruit


12 cm x 8 cm this little vase is a swerve from my 2021 theme of land and sea but during lockdown I became slightly obsessed by pink grapefruit. the fruit, the juice, and in particular the colour. This is my homage to that citrus delight.

all vases are supplied with a sample of museum gel which will secure the vase to your shelf. This vase is designed to be at this angle and the gel will not hold it in an upright position but will keep it safe

these delicate little vases are made using ceramic doughnuts. a flat blank is fired with the design in place. The blank is then suspended over a doughnut of bisque clay and the kiln works it’s magic. the three photographs below show you a very quickly taken shot of a vase dropping. this all happens at over 700 degrees and takes nearly three hours to achieve. and that’s after 5 hours to get to temperature and another 16 hours to cool down! 

these vases take  time to make as one fault in the glass and it won’t drop smoothly to form the vase.

opening the kiln after the drop is an exciting moment as you can see how the pattern has reformed itself after dropping through the aperture in the bisque doughnut.
