Much smaller in stature than many of the pieces we see from Gwen, this lovely, small vase is created in her signature, intricate style. The piece features a red and black base and is decorated in the sgraffito style, by which Gwen etches through the top portion of the pottery to reveal the colors underneath. A time-consuming method, sgraffito is one of Gwen’s specialties, and her pieces most often depict detailed roses along with hummingbirds and, often, butterflies. This particular piece features two hummingbirds surrounded by roses, the hummingbirds’ eyes set with turquoise and coral, respectively. The piece is finished with a beautiful stone polish, giving it shine and allowing the intricate patterns to further stand out. 3 7/8″ tall x 3 1/4″ wide.
