Martha Appleleaf Fender created this green on black vase. The vase has been painted with a green clay slip, which has a very subtle green coloration after the firing. The feather and geometrics are beautifully painted. The firing turned out really wonderfully, as there is gunmetal like sheen to it. The piece measures approximately 6″ x 4″.
