Porcelain Vase by Anna Silverton


Porcelain vase in semi-matt creamy white glaze.

Anna’s porcelain vases are hand thrown on the potter’s wheel. She searches for beautiful shapes in her making through incremental modifications and teasing out new combinations of intriguing form.

This vase transitions from a semi-matt glaze at the rim and neck to a matt glaze in the body.  The delicate change between textures plays with the light on the surface of the vase and a closer reflection of the attention to detail with which Anna approaches her work.

“I love working with porcelain and delight in the delicious throwing texture of it. I punctuate, interrupt and hone the profile of each piece by turning, making incised bands which are then highlighted by tactile glazes which reflect or absorb the light on their edges.”

Diameter at rim: 14.5 cm
