This small vase by Danish visionary Axel Salto is a bright chartreuse color and its raised areas resemble a Japonse Sake bottle taken over by sea moss, the protruding brown groves make the vase seem like it is coming alive like a sea urchin lying in wake until it is disturbed. This vase is the perfect example of Salto's special color effects that he created by letting the glazes flow over and between the nodules and through the grooves of the surfaces of many of his vases.

Marks: Salto's signature; three wave marks on the base of the vase.
