Sea Urchin Vase


This “Sea Urchin” vase by Asheville studio potter Anja Bartels was thrown on the wheel and then decorated with hundreds of tiny porcelain spikes. Anja’s nautical surface designs are inspired by her love of the ocean and her childhood memories of growing up in a port city on the North Sea.
