Product Description

Boulevard Decorative Vases

Story: Boulevard decorative vases were named for the strong, straight lines that typify this design. They are handmade by award-winning ceramics artist Russell Hackney, who learned his craft in the pottery heartland of Stoke-on-Trent, England and later moved to Canada to establish a studio on beautiful Bowen Island, near Vancouver, BC. The lines of these decorative vases are softened by the two panels with curve details, as is often the case in 19th Century European Architecture. Think Paris, Vienna…

Dimensions: 10.00 x 26.0 cm

Material: Hand modelled, tall slip cast porcelain decorative vases

Russell Hackney

"If all art is in some way a reaction, then the pursuit of beauty is my reaction to the world around me. Where nature is at its most memorable, I draw inspiration from it. In response to the bland or ugly, I react by wanting to create something beautiful. Beauty calls us to itself. It halts us in our daily routine and just for a moment all distractions, all opinions, are silenced – beauty becomes the unifier." Russell Hackney was born in Stoke-on-Trent, England, a city also known as ‘The Potteries’, birthplace of fine ceramics such as Wedgwood and Royal Doulton. Apart from 3 years’ study for his Bachelor of Arts Degree in Three-Dimensional Design, he spent his apprenticeship and working life under the watchful eye of his father, at the family business learning the craft of plaster mould-making for ceramics, a craft his father taught at Staffordshire Polytechnic. Russell also modelled designs for customers, from everyday functional ceramics to commissioned pieces. Perhaps his most notable achievement was modelling – along with mastermoulds and casing – a replica 19th Century clock that was presented to the Queen. In 2002, wanting the freedom to design and produce his own ideas, he emigrated to Vancouver, BC. He still provides design and mould-making services to customers in Canada and the US, and is pleased to present his own designs. He now lives on Bowen Island, BC.
