Illyria Pottery

Large Metallic Orb Vase


A wonderfully textured, wheel-thrown, vase, finished with a black metallic, high gloss, glaze with a stunning lux look. An especially rich surface with hints of blue throughout. 

While not necessarily intended for use, this vessel is water tight.

Katie Coston first opened Illyria Pottery in Greenville, South Carolina in 2008 but soon after moved to the UK where she was the artist in residence at couple of potteries in Henley-in-Arden. In 2012 she moved to Oxford where she now works from her garden studio creating effortlessly beautiful pieces of ceramics. 

"Since I was a girl, natural objects and their textures have fascinated me. I've always loved finding tiny objects, whether in a forest or on a beach. Now I incorporate these items into my work, mimicking their organic qualities or directly impressing them into clay. I hope the objects that I make join everyday rituals, making those traditions just a bit more lovely."
