Massier continues his thematic use of natural forms in this lovely work. This vase features a golden iridescent drip glaze and a rounded triangular form that resemble lava pouring down a volcano. The different contrasts of color within the glaze create the illusion of movement within the work. The molten lava appears to drip down the sides in a beautiful lustre.

Marks: Painted Clement Massier, Golfe-Juan, AM.
