Marine Vessel x EMMA KOHLMANN

11.5 × 10.5 × 3.5 / 1

THE COLLABORATION:

We are honored to collaborate with Emma Kohlmann for our first capsule collection of illustrated forms. Painted in both our Brooklyn studio and in Emma's studio in Western Massachusetts, each piece contains embracing figurines, mythical objects, and botanical motifs colorfully portrayed across the white stoneware surface of each vessel. 25% of each sale will be donated to the South Bronx Mutual Aid.

ABOUT THE FORM:

The Marine Vessel is an elongation of the Aortic Vessel, more similar to its original iteration, elevated on a foot similar in feel to that of the Bridge Handled Vessel. It is inspired by the curved oval forms of Japanese paper lanterns and mid-century lighting, but its boat-like belly is reminiscent of the sea. It can be used as both a vessel and a candelabra for thicker-based candles.

Materials: Cast white stoneware, green, blue, and red underglaze, clear glossy finish.
