Petite Bridge Handled Vessel x EMMA KOHLMANN

13.5 × 10.5 × 4 / Full Price, Perfect Condition

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 Bridge Handled Vessel is inspired by the bulbous belly and connecting arch that is commonly found in Pre-Columbian and Etruscan water vessels to act as a handle for easy carrying. This 2nd iteration is a squatter, wider version that nestles into the curves of the original to make a pair or stand on its own.

Materials: Cast white stoneware, black, red, and pink underglaze, clear glossy finish.
