Matte Black Textured Ikebana-style Studio Pottery Vase or Bowl

Regular price $60.00

With its stark lines and textured, charcoal black surface, this ceramic vase feels at once ancient and decidedly modern, and as much a sculptural object as a functional vessel. Use it with a flower frog to create a striking arrangement, as a bowl (for halloween candy? fall leaves or pinecones? clementines? evergreen branches?) or just as a beautiful object for display.

The hand thrown vase is signed at the bottom. It was purchased at the estate sale of a family of artists and collectors in Marblehead, MA, which included a fantastic collection of mid-century and contemporary ceramics from Japan, Europe and the U.S.

In excellent condition, it measures approximately 6 3/4 inches tall, 6 1/2 inches at widest diameter, and 1 3/4 inches at base.
