The unique Ravine vase is work of ceramic artist Alex McCarthy. Each design tells its own story and is crafted in Devon with a simple profile, then fired several times at different temperatures.
The artist looks to textures that surround us – from tree bark to natural rocks and crackling paint – to inspire the highly textured surface. A left-to-chance crackle finish gives the piece a tactile quality and spontaneous beauty.
Raw vs. Polish
The vase showcases contrasting textures and an exquisite blue and silver colour combination. Metal oxides are used to add depth while a trickle of platinum lustre gives the raw design a polished twist.
