Blue Grey Vase (CC)


20 cm tall slip cast moulded vase, exposed grey underglaze and blue matt glaze.

The geometry of this vase is created by three ovals one above the other. The middle oval is turned through 90 degrees and placed about two-thirds of the distance between the ovals at the lip and base of the piece. This creates a shape that bulges in the middle when seen from one side but cinches from the other – from another angle it looks completely straight sided.

The pattern plays with the inherent movement in this shape and is generated from a series of points on the edges of the ovals to create rows of triangles like arrow heads pointing both up and down that follow the turn of the ovals.

This vase work as a pair with Blue Grey 2. They are made from the same mould but one has the middle oval nearer the lip while the other has it nearer the base.

Designed and made by Caroline Cole

"Make one off pieces, generally on commission. I am intrigued by the way that geometries distort when painted in three-dimensions and how a twist or turn to a simple shape can have a profound effect on how a surface pattern is perceived. The patterns I make are highly geometric, sometimes inspired by repetitive configurations in nature, sometimes following sequences founded on prime numbers. Spirals and ovals have been a particular obsession. I am continually amazed by the depth of colour that can be achieved by layering glazes. I combine rough underglazed finishes with more traditional matt or polished glazes to add intrigue to each piece and create subtle variations in tone and intensity. At the moment I am working primarily with slip cast moulds, which enable me to make more than one piece of the same shape. This allows me to investigate my other fascination, namely reflections and inversions." C.Cole
