This early 20th-century vessel emulates the full-bodied shapes and unusual glazing found in ancient ceramics. A thick brown glaze clings to the upper half of the jar, dripping to a stop and leaving the lower half mostly unglazed. Some glaze seems to be collected in the textured surface of the terracotta, indicating the vessel may have been dipped in glaze and then cleaned off, a technique still utilized by modern day sculptors. The unglazed ceramic exhibits some minor losses as well as a marble-like contrast of light and dark. What's left of the glaze is crackled in texture and dynamic in color.

“Over the years, I’ve incorporated many pieces from PAGODA RED into my designs. Not only can they balance new furnishings (and often new construction) by feeling more established, but the pieces emanate a sense of rich history, often leaving you wondering where they were in a previous life. These beautiful pieces carefully hand-selected by the team at PAGODA RED, coupled with their unbelievable customer service, make them a must-have for any home.”
