An elegant, yet functional piece, this vase is able to pair with a stunning arrangement of exotic and formal flowers just as well as a simple bouquet of daisies. Standing at eleven inches tall, Bill Campbell’s Winding William Vase is especially suited for long stemmed flowers such as roses, tulips, peonies, or irises. Of course, it also holds its own standing empty on a table or mantle. Whether you are buying the Winding William Vase for yourself to decorate your home, gifting it for a wedding or other formal occasion, or purchasing it for your spouse just to say “I love you!”, you will find this vase brings wonder and amazement wherever it ends up.
About Bill Campbell’s Unique Crystalline glaze:
Due to the unique chemistry of crystalline glazes, Bill Campbell’s Stellar series evoke a different image to from piece to piece and person to person, which means that no two forms are the same. One piece may evoke an image of creeping morning frost on a window in deep winter, celestial images of nebula, galaxies and star dust in deep space, the stunning growth on a tropical ocean floor, or a geode mysteriously growing in a long forgotten cave. Since the crystalline structure grows independently during the firing process, there is no way for Bill Campbell to control or even know in advance if a given piece will contain an array of tiny crystals like a scattering of diamonds across the form, or large blooms of crystal like the spreading petals of an elegant peony. This amazing unpredictability creates a gleeful anticipation each time we receive new work from Bill Campbell that can only be satiated by a thorough oo-ing and ah-ing over each piece! We hope you will also find yourself inspired with a sense of wonder upon the arrival of your new crystalline pottery.
