Peking Meets Pollock

Scheurich West German Vase with Classic Chinese Silhouette (LEO Design)

Here's an unusual and compelling "statement piece."  Made in the 1960’s or 1970’s, it displays an interesting blend of the Classic and the Modern.  The shape comes directly from classic Chinese ceramics of the previous 500 years.  The glazing, however, is a radically exuberant “splattering” of textured chocolate-black over a base of glossy red.  Think Peking meets Pollock.  At nearly 16 inches tall, it would make a substantial backdrop to a collection of smaller pieces.  It would also function beautifully on its own—with or without flowering branches.
