This vase evokes the moodiness of San Francisco in summer. Created using sgraffito techniques, different types and colors of clay are brushed on and then carved away to reveal patterns and designs.
Clay: Cassius and Porcelain
Dimensions: 6.5 x 3 inches
Handmade in San Francisco, California
Product Note: As with all handmade items, please be aware that slight differences from the listing photo in color, dimensions, or silhouette may occur. I consider these natural variations a beautiful part of the process, and hope you will enjoy your truly one-of-a-kind, handmade purchase.
“Dear night: It was so warm
under you that I offered
but you refused
to endure. You won’t remember
me. (We danced. I was the one
in the dark. I was wearing
this face.) In daylight, I’m an acre of empty
desert, anyway. A spent white flower. A pale
honey scent wilted away.
And I’m having this dream:
I am mourned by millions.
I died young and I was so, so pretty.
