Last Days to Ship

Inspired by Mother Earth, the Pacific Ocean Vase delights the nature lover in all of us.

The range and depth of these blue glazes remind us of the Open Sea habitat at the Monterey Bay Aquarium. In fact, the kiln master has an affinity for fish and showcases a large arowana fish (aka dragon fish) in an aquarium in his showroom.

The vase shape is called tsurukubi because it has a bulbous body like a crane and long thin neck.  Made by prolific kiln Kozan Seito of Gifu, Japan, the unique glaze pattern is created by dipping the vase body in a deep blue glaze (ruri or cobalt) and then the neck portion in a soft lighter blue (toruko or turquoise). During firing, the glazes melt and flow together creating an evocative pattern.
