Vase, Ernest Chaplet, c. 1885 - c. 1886

stoneware, h 37.2cm × d 27.3cm. More details

Like some painters, such as Van Gogh, potters also derived inspiration from Japanese art. This is evident in the motifs of swallows and Japanese cherry blossoms on this vase, which are incised or modelled in relief. Chaplet was the first to use simple stoneware for art pottery, to which he applied subdued colours using either glazes or slip (thin layers of liquid clay).

On display in room 1.18-02
