Chihuahuan Desert Agave

Ceramic Vessel

Created by John Davis
Inspired by the subtle colors of a wild desert. This inlaid vase id made from slabs pressed into molds made from actual flowers and leaves or sculpted in an oil based clay. The vases are hand-formed, dried slowly, and then painted with colorful underglazes before firing for the first time. To give it an aged look, the vase is washed with a rich dark stain, and delicate details are air- and hand-brushed before firing again.
