This is an earthy little flower frog vase in a crystalline glaze called Algae and Moss by its artist, Ray West who makes one-of-a-kind pieces. Mr. West is a contemporary art potter whose work is listed by the Association of Clay and Glass Artists of California. The flower frog is glazed in tones of green and muted brown, reminiscent of lichens in the woods or by a stream. It's shaped like a low and wide round gourd, and inside the central round opening is a small set of spikes (shown).
Signed on underside Ray West 2004 above his mark SP for Sequoia Pottery. The piece measures 5 ¼” in diameter x 2” tall with a 1” diameter opening for flowers at center of top. It is in excellent condition with no cracks, scratches, chips or crazing. Very lovely!
