We really love Ian Carty’s ceramic vases.
Having a bronze foundry on site, we are often surrounded by used crucibles (crucibles are the large vessels from which the molten bronze is poured during the casting process) and each time a crucible is finished with, the outside of them become coated with many bubbling layers of molten metal, leaving a texture and colour palette very, very similar to Ian’s ceramic work. This is what we think of every time we see Ian’s vases. Of course, outside of this reason, they are just very beautiful pieces of ceramic art-work to have in your home or office. These pieces make a fabulous gift – either to yourself or someone special!
