Ryan L Foote — Large Crystalline Vase in Sapphire
A large porcelain vase with vibrant custom glaze designed by Ryan Foote.
Ryan's crystalline glazes were custom developed over the course of four years at his Melbourne studio. Involving a complex recipe of multiple oxides and minerals, and a firing process which is driven by precise adjustments in temperature - each resulting work is unique. The crystals seen on each piece grow within the molten glaze under the extreme heat and pressure of the kiln, creating distinctive arrangements which can never be repeated.
Please note: Owing to the uniqueness of each piece, the glaze may vary slightly from work to work.
