Artjam Studio, Caversham 

Based upon the work of Marion Angelica, whose original Basket Vases reflect a Japanese influence.   The basket vase looks good both with and without flowers with the handle helping to hold flowers in place.  Made using soft slabs giving a fabic like quality to the Basket vase and are great fun to make for people of all levels of experience with clay.  

I will dry, fire and glaze the Basket Vase, in a colour of your choice.
