About this artwork

A technical tour-de-force, this diminutive vase displays the exquisite crystalline glaze perfected by Adelaide Alsop Robineau after years of experimentation. She most often applied this glaze to small vessels that were intended for cabinet display. The jewel-like quality and spontaneous appearance of the crystals derive from the glaze formula and firing technique. Created by the prominent artist-potter only three years before her death, this vase exemplifies the unadorned aesthetic preferred by modern studio ceramists.
