In the Pelagic Zone

Back to Shoppe Selection Page

Steve’s Comments: This is another vase where the design is inspired by the “Espanol” line of pottery from Newcomb College. “Pelagic” is derived from the ancient Greek “pélagos” and defined as “the open sea.” The pelagic zone consists of the water columns of the open ocean. The naming of this vase is fitting to the columnar incised lines, blue colors and coral like glazing at the top of the vase and white specks of sea life speckled in the glazing for the lower half of the vase. The shape of the vase and multi-banded foot rings give the vase a bit of a Greek urn vibe.

Midway down from rim are five sets of 9 vertical downward incised lines, graduating in length from the center longest line. Smaller vertical incised lines are between each of the 5 graduated sets.
