Description:

Ceramic vase gift set – 1 x Chemistry bottle, 1 x Ketchup portion bottle and 1 x Jar. A brilliant table center decoration, or mantle piece feature. Ceramic vase bottles are stoneware high fired to 1225 degrees which gives ceramic a nice ‘ring’.

Ceramic bottle vases have a glossy, satin white glaze with a dreamy landscape horizon. Helen’s skill at controlling the point at which glaze melts is contrasted with the raw, unglazed matte ceramic, making the vases very tactile. Use with flowers, foliage cuttings, leaves and stalks, they are versatile as vases or a contemporary design statement.

Weight 400 gm
Dimensions 4 × 6 × 11 cm
Care Instructions:

Wash with warm soapy water.

Story:

The atlas bottle vase collection is cast from a collection of original 19th and 20th Century glass bottles. These times were dominated by mass production and consumerism. Bottles and objects were cast adrift from their different eras. Different bottle designs and styles were reused and re sold before ending up in over spills such as antique auctions or charity shop shelves, awash with other random objects. This collection brings together disparate objects from distant styles with different functions to ask; what are the design rules?

Helen‘s ceramic work embraces the crossover space between art, craft and design. She makes objects that question our sense of what is familiar and what is functional.
She makes subtle, playful changes to familiar objects and styles creating surprising and curious pieces. Her work is tactile and sensory. It is about the surfaces, textures and shapes of everyday things: of displaced objects, their origins and stories. Molten and cooled glazes form the surfaces of objects. Glossy, satin, matte and dry glazes flow, fuse and compose imagery from chemistry. Glazes hint of aquascapes, or places where scale and form are less obvious and so the work gives way to an exploratory feel. Her current work explores the idea of what a vase form is through her slab built work.
Material process:
Working in clay is an absorbing process. It is a slow moving material that inspires patience and delicacy to bring it to its final state. The processes Helen uses are slip casting, hand building with slabs, inlaid and pressed textures. The glazes are applied by dipping or painting and layered onto other glazes to create unique results. Melting glazes has become a theme about capturing a moment in time. Like a rock or crystal structure that was cooled or compressed leaving it in that shape for millennia, a glaze melts and drips until the temperature drops in the kiln and the glaze stops on the pot.
