Seaweed Sophistication

Hand-Thrown European Studio Ceramic Vase with Sophisticated Microcrystalline Vase (LEO Design)

Though I am not certain who made this hand-thrown studio ceramic vase (or where it was made), it is the height of sophistication and quality.  Heavy stoneware is gently hand-formed on a wheel—resulting in an elegant profile, gently sloping shoulders, and an exquisitely-executed top spout.  Then it is finished with a sublime microcrystalline glazing treatment—a wonderful blend of organic blues, browns and greens—reminiscent of the swaying "laminae" of underwater seaweed.  Click on the photo above to learn more about this remarkable piece.
