Crockery by Max Lamb - Big vase
A new addition to the Crockery collection by Max Lamb for 1882 Ltd, the 'Big Vase' starts life as a solid plaster block and is carved with a hammer and chisel into the shape of the vase. A hollow, three part mould is created from the plaster, allowing multiple vases to be slip cast in fine bone china. Because each stage is done by hand, the size of the kiln and the huge stress put on the fine bone china is a critical factor.
The 'Big Vase' challenges all aspects of the production, from the strength of the potters to physical properties of the clay to the technical capabilities of the pottery.
Limited Edition of 25. Vase no.7.
