Working with Paula is a real pleasure. It is exciting to chat with her about certain shapes, and about which designs will fit those various forms. This hand coiled vase is painted with natural pigments. Using the triangular pattern, this is a wonderfully symmetrical vase. The black painted border on the lip sets off the colorful patterns so well. Particularly pleasing is the square opening. Notice how well Paula can make the design stretch out on the vase – tiny triangles at the top graduating in size to the larger triangles on the body of the jar. You can see what an expert painter she is. The use of the red slip, forming petal like areas from the neck down into 1/3 of the body is outstanding. OP ART! And so thin walled !
