'A.W.F / 89'

Hand thrown from the white clay typical of his Virginal production, this important pair of vases combines a yellow to brown flambé glaze with an engobe decoration of inverted comma's, and a rare green drip around the neck. Finch at his most experimental, several small kiln accidents can be noticed. The annotation '89' refers to a production number, while the other vase bears an old collection label.
