Più Single Stem Vessel
9 × 3 × 3 / Holiday Drop 2021
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 3rd iteration is perfect for small stems or as an object in itself.
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, matte warm white glaze with slight crackle to surface. Smooth to touch.
