Glass Eels Vase


This vessel was wheel thrown with porcelain clay. Once trimmed I spend some time drawing out the designs on the surface. The Glass Eels are a species that is protected in the Hudson River and are collected and counted and returned to the river each spring. They are a delicacy in many places but protected here. Once the design is decided I cover the vase with blue slip clay and then carve through the clay to leave the image on the surface.
