Story: Dandelion is a handmade vase created by Vancouver Sculptor Anyuta Gusakova. Much of Anyuta’s work is inspired by the beauty of our natural environment and by the experiences she has while walking in and contemplating the outdoors. Here’s what Anyuta says about the unique design of Dandelion:
“Dandelion Vase was inspired by an original sculpture I made entitled ‘Dandelion Girl’. Her elegant and elongated figure, topped with hair of white feathers, resembles the white dandelion flower. In both the sculpture and the handmade vase I have tried to convey a feeling of unity between nature and humans and our mutual gentle and vulnerable essence that needs care and love – just like flowers do.
The Dandelion handmade vase is created from fine high fire porcelain. It is glazed inside to hold water. The outside surface is unglazed, polished and decorated with gold lustre. The imagery on the handmade vase is a carved low relief of a gentle flower girl – Dandelion, on both sides flanked by stylized images of the dandelion leaf. I hope you enjoy having this item in your home as much as I loved creating it!”
