The Scion AV Installation supports independent artists and their creative visions by hosting monthly exhibitions and offering custom-made products for sale. All of the proceeds from the sales of these products go either directly back to the artist, or to a charity of their choosing. Now available at the Scion AV Installation are ceramic bud vases from designer Cynthia Vardhan.
One small bud vase with predominately peacock green based areas with raised patterns. They look great displayed individually or in a group setting.
The colors are in the turquoise-to-teal spectrum with invigorating pops of yellow, orange and white. Actual patterns and vases may vary from those shown in above pic, but will be very similar. Sizes range from 3-5″ in height.
The vases are made from a proprietary fine translucent porcelain that she formulated and mix herself. If you raise one to a lamp, you can see light coming through the piece. She throws all of my work on the wheel in my studio. The pigmented slip is applied through a needle-like tool in a precise and clean pattern which requires both skill, time, and years of practice.
All pieces are lead-free and are completely food and microwave safe. Dishwashing detergents may wear down the raised textures, so gentle-cycle or hand washing is preferred.
ABOUT THE ARTIST
Her body of work is diverse in intention and themes, but unified by the use of symbolic and narrative surface decoration as a means of communication. Continued investigation in slip application has led to her precise vocabulary of lines, layers, patterns, colors and textures.
The pieces she produces cannot always be neatly classified as art, design or craft. Instead of pigeonholing work in one distinct area, she sees these concepts as three points on a graph- some of my work is more towards one point, some is closer to another. The versatility of ceramics invites her to explore across genres.
