This vase is one of a series in an exhibition called "Reaching Up".
This porcelain vase is functional and has a celadon glaze similar to those used
by the Chinese potters in the Tang Dynasty.
Then surprisingly low-firing Raku glazes are poured over the celadon to give a fluid melt of
reds and blues and greens.
They were all fired in a high-fire gas kiln.
The bases by contrast add a substantial grounding to the vessels
and are fired with a black lava glaze.
