Handmade by ceramic artist Eloise Rankine in the elph ceramics studio, only a handful of these beautiful artworks are created each year.

Year: 2019

 

These works are inspired by my mother’s love of gardening and her quilting practice. Each vessel is carved with floral motifs taken from the garden such as rosemary or gardenias. ‘Cover me’ and ‘Grow on me’ vessels are carved with repeating patterns, as often found on mum’s fabric swatches, while ‘Growing up’ vessels are carved with the budding form of a flower on one side with the flower in bloom on the other.

Each vessel I make speaks softly and asks the viewer to look closely, slow down and take a quiet moment of aesthetic appreciation.

Grow on me No.4: 70mm x 65mm | Cover me no.4: 65mm Diameter x 140mm Height | Growing Up Gardenia: 65mm Diameter x 140mm Height | Grow on me No.1: 95mm Diameter x 165mm Height.

Hand wash only. Completely unique in shape and pattern, Eloise throws each vessel on the pottery wheel using Australian porcelain before meticulously carving detailed patterns and textures. While stunning on their own, each vessel is water tight and can be used as a vase.

Eloise is a classically trained ceramic artist with a Bachelor of Fine Art (Honours, Ceramics) from the National Art School.
