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 includes a band of matt glaze around the body of the vase, with a semi-matt glaze at the neck and rim, and the base. The transitions between glazes create a delightful and subtle effect in the play of light across the surface of the vase.

“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.”
