Leaf Vessel II
Leaf Vessel II by ceramicist Charlotte McLeish is part of a collection of terracotta vases inspired by the figures and stories of ancient greek mythology and the traditional artefacts and pottery of that era. This piece celebrates the powerful symbol of the olive branch carrying the meaning of peace and friendship.
Whilst exploring the forms and silhouettes of vases of ancient Greece, Charlotte found herself not only drawn to their shape but the storytelling role of the vase within this ancient civilisation. Each vase playfully recreates the energy of these narratives with figures, patterns, and stories inscribed onto their surface, capturing the trevails of Gods, Goddesses, women, animals and mythical creatures.
