Grey Flower Woodland Vessel II

Elaine Bolt
Grey Flower Woodland Vessel II by Elaine Bolt is a wheel-thrown porcelain vessel with hand cut, locally grown elm and beech twigs added to the top, along with lichen and delicate porcelain flowers. Elaine is inspired by the colours and tones of the Sussex landscape, where the flint and chalk fields provide a distinctive backdrop. The use of organic materials, as well as small hand-built decorative elements, connects her work to the local surroundings thus creating a tangible bond between the object and its source of inspiration.
