Powerhouse Blue Swags and Dots Bud Vase
This romantic piece is executed in Ebony's imitable piped porcelain technique draped in with creamy swags and dots. Internally glazed and ready to accept a pairing with your favourite perfumed blooms. Thoroughly modern, yet classic, fanciful and sweet. Alternatively can be used as a fantastic candle holder. Simply remove any wax drips by pouring boiling water over after use.
Sharing the same DNA and piped with the same exclusive 'Powerhouse Blue' porcelain Ebony has used for her Wedgwood informed commission featured in the current Powerhouse exhibition 'Clay Dynasty'.
Made exclusively for the Powerhouse Shop in strictly limited numbers. This is a rare opportunity to acquire a never to be repeated work of art.
Challenging the established perceptions of cultural and artistic practices that were once exclusively coded as feminine and thus insignificant, Russell’s work celebrates the decorative, promiscuous aesthetics and politics of purity; the superficial, excess and delight – with pleasure.
Ebony Russell completed a Bachelor of Applied Arts (Honours) at Monash University in 2003 and in 2019 graduated from The National Art School Sydney with a Masters of Fine Art. Russell has won many awards including the Franz International Rising Star Award in 2018.
“My art is decadent, highly experimental and overtly feminine. I make objects that are an ode to excess, made entirely of decorative ornamentation with the use of high-fired porcelain. My Piped Dream Studio project is a collection of functional pieces that reference the delicate layers and embellishments of my sculptural work”.
