Large Cosmic Orb Vase, roughly 10.5 inches tall by 10.5 inches wide, Inspired by a Molecular Cloud Nebula (SP344, J344)

$2,400.00

These orb shaped vases are inspired by a swooping cloud of gases captured by NASA's Hubble Space Telescope. The gorgeous, cosmic glaze pallet is locked permanently onto a medium sized orb vase. 

This large vase had a three part crack on the bottom from the drying and firing process. It cracked beautifully and did not go all the way through the pot, so I finished the cracks with a gold "gilding" technique over the cracks and my signature with 24 karat gold. 

I think of these pots as abstract paintings. Real images of deep space galaxy cloud clusters and nebula inspire my abstract glaze paintings over an "Oil Spot Black" base glaze, meant to reference the night sky.
