This slender and elegant one of a kind vase is handmade by artist Elyse Graham in her Los Angeles studio.
This collection of vessels is inspired by striated landscapes caused by glacial erosion as well as the beautiful colors found in foliated metamorphic rock.
The artist is best known for her striking color palette and proclivity for layering hues to create surprising juxtapositions of color.
Though often thought to be either ceramic or glass, these pieces are neither. Graham has designed a unique process for creating these pieces. Each drip vase is hand-cast with hydrocal plaster inside of a unique balloon shape. The interior of each piece is poured with layers of resin, making it waterproof. Finally, each drip vase is hand-dyed by the artist with layer after layer of custom mixed pigments and then sealed with a UV resistant acrylic coating.
