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 design by Peter Harris depicting deep space and is a development of the Supernova range. The vase is hand painted with differing colours and glazes so that each vase is unique. This particular vase has the addition of hand painted vibrant solar flares and suns as shown in close up. 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 11" Purse shape.
Each of the Supernova pieces are entirely one offs adding to the prestige nature of each piece.
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 in gold by both Anita Harris and Peter Harris together with trial detailing.
It is in excellent condition with no chips, cracks or restoration.
