The Stretch Vase in Lichen Lava by Los Angeles ceramicist Morgan Peck is a unique, handmade vase. Morgan Peck started her journey in 2011 which 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.
