The extraordinary vase is part of series of creations by acclaimed ceramic artist Alex McCarthy. The piece is crafted in Devon, England, with a tall profile then fired several times at different temperatures.
From tree bark to natural rocks and crackling paint, McCarthy draws inspiration from everyday textures to inspire the raw surface. The left-to-chance crackle finish gives the design a tactile quality and means each creation is one of a kind.
Raw Meets Luxe
Adding to the sense of unique beauty, the vase is enhanced by a spontaneous trickle of metallic paint. The golden lustre flows fluidly down the design and acts as its perfect complement to the grey and brown backdrop.
