Mike Bush: Umber Faceted Stoneware Vase
A lovely hand-built stoneware vase with a rich, russet lustre glaze with greyish patches. This piece has faceted sides on the lower half and an under-cut base.
Mike Bush is a contemporary potter based in Hampshire. He has been making pots since the 1970s but has spent more time focussing on his work in the last five years.
His stoneware pots are either thrown on the wheel (and sometimes altered) or slab-built. He develops his own glazes - aided by his background as a research chemist. All of his work is vitrified stoneware fired in an oxidizing atmosphere. He is a member of the Alton and Farnham Art Societies and a number of specialist ceramic groups.
Unique. Signed MB on the bottom.
