BARBAR Floating Garden Venus - One-Flower Vase

Regular price $59.00

This single-stem vase is a sculpture all on its own. Even without flowers, it makes a bold statement that will accent any room. Venus can refer to both the planet and the Roman goddess of love and beauty, and when this piece is turned upside down, it resembles both the planet symbol for Venus and the female gender symbol.

On the outside, we have used clear crackle kanyu glazing and cracked hibi designs, but it is up to apple the sumi-kanyu ink that soaks in to render those designs visible. You won’t know what kind of pattern will appear until you’ve applied the ink.

How to Apply Ink

Add the sumi-kanyu ink to the brush and apply it to the area where you want the pattern to appear. Then wait for about 5 minutes and rinse off the ink with water. One application may not be enough for the pattern to become visible, in which case, please adjust the amount of ink and number of applications until the desired look is achieved.

The single-stem vase, originally white, will take on a new appearance as ink is applied.

Additional Information

The crackle kanyu pattern in the glaze arises from the difference of shrinkage between the clay and the glaze and is not artificially created. Kanyu cracks can be expected to expand with age with no fear of breakage. Hibi crack patterns will vary.
Partial changes in temperature can cause the item to crack. Be careful not to expose only one part of the item to heat.
Technique: Kanyu glaze
