Più Aortic Vessel
4 × 2.75 × 5.5 / Holiday Drop 2021
The Più Aortic Vessel is inspired by the curved oval forms of Japanese paper lanterns and mid-century lighting. It can be used as both a vessel and a candelabra.
The Più Series is, in essence, a miniature line of our most popular forms: The Single Stem Vessel, The Bridge Handled Vessel, and the Aortic Vessel. "Più" is an onomatopoeic word that sounds exactly how the pieces look, but with a twist, translates in Italian to "more". We like this play on the word whose sound mimics the feel of the piece, but also gets to the intentional root of this series; expanding on the work to make it more accessible and more varied.
Materials: Cast white stoneware, black underglaze, slightly textured matte black glaze.
