Following the Sun - IV


Pilkington Royal Lancastrian English Arts & Crafts Vase with Dripping Orange "Uranium" Glazing (LEO Design)

For the next several days, we'll be sharing a few of our favorite pieces of sunny, orange pottery.  Nothing chases away the Winter Blues quite as well as a sideboard full or radiating orange ceramics!

The organic, caramelized glaze—which drips languorously down the neck, shoulders and sides of this large English Arts & Crafts vase—only serves to heighten the molten sensibility of the underlying glaze. A mottled, rich orange seems to flow and curdle over the yellow glaze below.  The effect is like the Sun, being coated in a dripping, cosmic sauce.  And the impressive size of this vase ensures it will be a handsome "statement piece" wherever it is displayed.  Click on the photo above to learn more about it.

More orange-glazed vintage pottery tomorrow and in the days to come.
