The glazes on these Bottle Kiln Vases resemble the frost-coloured lichen that grows on weathered limestone and granite buildings and headstone as they are inspired by historical Victorian 'chimney pots,' cathedral architecture and the principals of the Arts & Craft movement.

CABOOSE Pottery is a line of functional ceramics by Sarah Hamelin. Each handcrafted piece is made by a combination of wheel-thrown work and slab-building. She is inspired by Gothic Revival architecture and the simplicity found in the natural world. She combines angular shapes and glaze patterns with soft forms to create pieces that seek harmony between the man-made and natural world. Her unique glaze is reminiscent of frost-coloured lichen found growing on weathered stone, a reminder of the strong and quiet existence of our adaptable, natural world.
