Octopus Greek Amphora in Caribbean Blue
This vase is designed after the classic Amphora which does not have a flat bottom but rather comes to a point and was designed to carry wine or other distilled spirits. The amphora can only be put down when it is completely empty. (sounds like a fun party!)
I tweaked this design and imaged the vase (home to an octopus) on an ocean floor being discovered at an ancient shipwreck.
The Caribbean Blue glaze is my special recipe. It took many months of experimenting to acquire the the bright blue with transparent green. In the end it requires a 3rd firing and a total of 7 coats of glaze.
The size of this piece is aprx. 19" long x 12" high x 15 " deep at the widest and tallest points.
The glazes used are lead free. Artwork is completely hand built in NC.
PLEASE NOTE!!!!!!!You are purchasing this item as a "MADE TO ORDER" work of art!!!! THIS WILL TAKE APRX 3-4 WEEKS!
This is a Large and delicate piece it will be packed and shipped accordingly.
