Spring has Sprung!

Floral Cartouche Urn

A two-colour floral cartouche decorates this second release of 2013 from the rcboisjoli studios. This form was hand turned on our plaster lathe in two parts and two slip cast parts were joined together to create a more complex form. The generous vase portion of the urn has ample capacity to hold all of your fresh spring blossoms while the wide base adds all the stability you need. 

The floral decal was printed in two layers of coloured overglaze, mustard and black, and reflects old European ceramics. The yellow ground was a popular choice for French ceramics in the late 18th century. We chose to represent the yellow as a half tone effect, playing with the idea of high art printed cheaply, much like a comic book. The floral images are based on a commercial fabric of a similar time, updated and modernized with a bolder harder line. 
Glazed in our newest glaze, Ultra White, it is durable and easy to clean. Fabricated by hand right here in Toronto. Slip cast from a durable porcelain slip. Measures: 18 x 13 x 13 cm (7" x 5" x 5")

Just listed in our Etsy shop, this urn can be yours just as the flowers start to bloom. Pick one up here
