Stofan Pottery Ceramic Venetian Vase - Blue Small

Item# FSVMNB


The Stofan Pottery Ceramic Venetian Vase - Blue Small features an elegantly shaped shoulder and curved lip that makes it a standalone classic or a perfect choice for your favorite blooms. A mottled blue ash glazed lip flows down into Stofan's signature tree-like ash glaze, referencing Arts & Crafts era styles and techniques. Height: 5.5". These pieces are from the final firing of these designs, as Frank Stofan has retired after decades creating these distinctive items. Each vase is signed and dated 2023.

One of the features of Frank Stofan's process is that the wood ash glaze is formulated with ashes recycled from the wood stoves of neighbors in the community. The ashes help melt the other elements in the glaze, causing the effect of tree-like imagery on the surface of the clay pieces. The clay used is fine, white stoneware, very smooth to the touch. Each piece is hand-thrown on the potter’s wheel, signed, glazed, and fired to 2300 degrees. Since each piece is hand-thrown, slight size variations should be expected. Frank Stofan opened his Venago, Pennsylvania studio in 1998 where he developed this unique line of ash glazed pottery equally suited for everyday use and the collector's table.
