Double Stretch Vase, Frosted Flax
The Double Stretch Vase in Frosted Flax made by Los Angeles ceramicist Morgan Peck is a unique, handmade vase. Her namesake ceramic company, started in 2011, includes mirrors, lamps, sculptures and vases all made in her backyard studio. Every piece is made individually by hand without the use of moulds. Peck’s work continues in the footsteps of the studio potters that preceded her and she takes note of numerous styles, hinting at the Memphis Group, the Bauhaus, and Art Deco. Sometimes reproducing the forms of Venetian glass and the splotchy surfaces of 19th century spongeware, she moves through these references with a modest, considered, and decidedly modern touch.
