It was inevitable. Vida vases were calling for the black counterpart.
The porcelain is colored as clay. The pigment added makes it more dry and prone to crumbling but the result is worth the effort.
Each leaf is individually made and carved by hand using different hand tools. Cracklings that appear when some of the leaves are bent are more than welcome to contribute to the atmosphere of the vases.
For the sake of balance, not all the surfaces are glazed and each vase has one leaf in gold.
These vases are very demanding to make and we are all happy how they pushed our limits.
