Rare Vtg Original Signed 1989 Paul Philp Grey Ceramic Art Pottery Vase Pot 8.5"
This listing is for an original piece of art pottery by Paul Philp. The piece is signed and dated 1989. This bulbous gray work has an off-white band around the top with a thin, dark ring around the bottom. The piece is in good condition overall with a tiny little hole at the base of the "neck" and an indentation on one side that we assume occurred during manufacture; it cannot be felt on the inside. The work is about 8.5" tall and 10" in diameter. Please see the photos below to see everything that is included, and contact us with any questions before bidding. We have a low opening bid and no reserve price so don't miss your chance to win!
"Paul Philp has been making pottery for forty years. Paul does not coil or use slabs, each piece is built by hand. A slow process, but one which allows the work to evolve naturally. He often combines a mixture of clays which, because of the different shrinking ratios, cause cracking and fissures. Ceramic colours are used only with restraint. Experiments with different forms of crude iron, often combined with tin oxide, have resulted in a range of extraordinary deep red surfaces.
"Though all work is fired to about 1260 C, the length and number of firings and the finishing techniques differ as each piece is unique. Many can be fired up to five times. Slips and a very basic dry ash glaze may be applied in varied ways. Dipping, dry glazing over a raw or fired-on slip, creates great difference in the finished result.
"As well as developing his skills and ideas as a potter he has spent much of his time learning to build in traditional ways. He is also interested in literature, in ancient culture, oriental art, geology and the natural world and contributed articles to Ceramic Review International Magazine of Ceramics."
