Urn forms based on Sevres Porcelain

Urn form

 After meeting with my mentor last week I have begun a series of Urn forms inspired by Sevres Porcelain. I have been making scaled down versions of the original Sevres Urns (they were 4-5ft high!). I have made some colored slips to use on the surface to replicate the colors used in the Sevres work. Instead of the scrolling florals typically used for decoration during this time period I will be using my own iconography based on military equipment identification manuals that I used during my service in the Air Force. Will post more as they progress.
