This fabulous hand made and hand painted art pottery vase was produced by the world renowned and highly collected Anita Harris Art Pottery studio in Stoke on Trent, England.
It features a stunning trial design by Peter Harris depicting deep space and is provisionally named Solar Storm. The vase is hand painted with differing colours and glazes so that each vase is unique. The vase uses the classic Anita Harris reactive glazes which interact violently against each other in the firing, producing an amazing finish. Surface crackling to the glaze occurs with the different expansion rates which, together with the hand painting, makes each vase unique. This particular vase is one of the largest Anita produces and is the magnificent and imposing Tokyo shape.
The antique effect of the glaze will remain for the life of the piece. "Pinging" will be heard, especially at dawn and dusk when large temperature changes can happen. A unique feature of the reactive glaze art pottery.
The vase is signed to the base by Peter Harris together with Trial detailing.
It is in good display condition with no later chips, cracks or restoration. There is a small abrasion to the corner of the underside where the item has satin the kiln (as shown in the extreme close up photo). However this does not affect general appeal or display.
