Cast, carved and manipulated Parian.
SIBLING VASES are a new collection by designer-maker, Elle Maxwell. This family of vases spring from one base shape, yet each is different to the last. Whether carved, retextured, or manipulated, each vessel is independent from it’s group, yet intrinsically cohesive as a collection. All pieces are uncommonly made of parian, which is remarkably marble like in quality, needless of glaze. Parian is little used now, yet tactile and beautiful. Every vase has been finished by hand, polishing up the translucent surface until surprisingly soft and lovely to hold.
