Victoria Gilles Fernández Astral Vase
A hand painted vase inspired by Victoria's Latin American heritage, art history, and the need to reconnect with nature and rituals.
This is a stoneware vase with a pattern made by inlaying coloured clay into the base surface made from off-white clay. It is then finished with a transparent glaze while also exposing the raw surface and creating interesting contrasts, textures and tone differences. It has two irregular-shaped handles finished with a blue glaze. It is glazed inside and can hold water.
H: 18 cm. / W: 13 cm. (including handle)

All the materials and ingredients used in Victoria’s ceramics are sourced from local businesses: biodegradable and paper-based materials are always chosen if possible. Most clays, packing and advertising materials she uses are both sourced and manufactured locally in the UK, and her glazes and stains are sourced from companies based in France and Germany.
Clay can be used indefinitely if not fired, so Victoria endeavours to use every single bit of her supply. In fact, Victoria measures the amount of water her process produces, and through refinement of her technique has reduced her consumption to just 200ml per day. The packing materials and business cards are all made from recycled materials, and she will recycle what materials she has on hand from other packages too. If a product comes out wrong or is misfired, it is repurposed in Victoria’s home or used in a future mosaic in her communal studio.
