Hi everyone, this vase has no marks on the base, looks like it once has a sticker though, the base is unglazed and looks like white clay. The glaze is deep green and blue with a matte harlequin drip finish that shines in bright colours like motor oil.. Is that the correct way of describing it (not the motor oil bit) or is there a special name for this glaze? Would this glaze perhaps indicate the maker? It's 27cm tall. Thanks Smile

Not sure at all, but I have seen similar glazes on Hobby Ceramic pieces. Especially in these glaze tones. Rather dynamic indeed.

Thinking about this, I would class it above the Hobby Ceramic mentality. There were and probably still are very serious people who ran businesses using pottery shapes that they purchased and glazed exquisitely. These people would purchase their glazes from companies such as Mayco and the bisqued ware from places like Greenware.com and they had great success and expertise.

I don't think it is a hobby ceramics vase. As Ev said the glaze is too professional and the base would not be white but glazed. It also looks too sturdy for it to be hobby.

Just found this vase made by Divine Design New Zealand on Trade Me that looks very much like your vase nzmade. What do you think?
