The artist meditates and shapes the form using only her hands, white clay and Japanese paper. While the lump of clay is drying, the inside is hollowed out and scraped to form the shape. After under-glazing, glaze is applied in two parts. A total of three firings complete the process. The artist signs the bottom, which is hidden by the glaze. The outside is coated with silicone to protect it from water leakage.

 

Dimensions: 3.9"H x 7"W x 5.5"D

This artwork ships in 1 to 3 business days.

About The Artist

ARTIST STATEMENT

The environment of Karuizawa, where Ricca Okano’s studio is located, affects the background of the creation of her works. Inspired by volcanoes, fog, forests and their ecosystems, changing clouds and light, she transforms them into shapes and colors. Then, she adds to it the emotion of the moment. Scenes picked up from the present, past and future time frames are blended, like coffee beans, projecting layers of dripped consciousness.

      

 

Shipping & Insurance

 Shipping + Insurance

 All Vessels + Sticks orders are packaged by the artists themselves and shipped directly to you, the collector. This process allows us to reduce overall shipping costs as well as our carbon footprint.  

Local or international charges vary depending on the location of the artist and the collector.  Please note that multiple shipping charges will apply if you order works from more than one artist. 

All ceramic artworks are ready to ship. Please allow 1 to 3 days for an order to be processed and the artwork to be prepared for shipping.  If an artist is away, longer shipping times will apply and adjusted timing will be indicated on the artwork page.

Shipping Rates

Shipping rates are calculated based on the size and weight of the package, domestic or international carrier service requirements and origination and destination address. An estimate will be provided upon checkout.  Some artworks may require additional packing, handling or special shipping arrangements. If this is the case, you will be directed to a member of our team to receive a shipping estimate and to coordinate details. 

Taxes and Duties

International orders may be subject to import duties and taxes incurred when the delivery reaches your destination. The charges of import duties and taxes must be paid by the recipient of the order.  Unfortunately, we have no control over these charges and we have no way of knowing what the charges will be in advance. Please contact your local customs office for further information before placing your order.
