Reto Era 50's Vase

Reto Era 50's Vase

$40.00

Production Notes - After months of experiments, we have mastered the Crystalline process and are producing our own unique custom mixed Crystal Glaze vases. Elegant, precious and one of a kind. The crystal process is difficult with a high failure rate but so incredible and beautiful. Each crystal is similar to ice crystals that form on a winter window. If you are looking for something special - You found it with this line of soft blue, white and soft green crystalline vases.

While technically this is a Crystalline vase, the crystals fused and created this retro feeling vase from the 1950's with chrome and yellow kitchens. I liked it so much because it reminded me of my childhood and things we used to have in Czechoslovakia. It's fun and I hope you like it too.

The actual dimensions and weight of this specific piece are below. All individual photos of this item are of the actual product, there are no backorders, each item is unique and original. Note - I offer FREE priority shipping which is like $10.00 to $15.00 or more off your total cost.

About Our Process

Items I create are hand-thrown pottery from clay on a wheel in my studio or occasionally hand-formed flat pieces. All are original and one-of-a-kind as there are no production runs of this work. Nor are the pieces dipped in glaze - they are all hand painted with multiple coats to achieve a rich dimensional glaze look.

For the crystalline vases - it is even more arduous of a process. I mix my own glazes, constantly tweaking them to enhance the crystal size and occurrence. However, you CANNOT control the exact placement and color hue - The temperature and time in the kiln is far higher and longer for crystalline pieces. Truly these are all one of a kind vases.

The process is highly laborious, but I love the simple, whimsical and unique look of every piece. I am constantly experimenting with color combinations, design concepts and ultimately the actual use of these pieces for my friends and customers. I hope you enjoy the pieces for many years to come and I look forward to your feedback on my work.

Yours in Clay . . . Eva.
