Frances Palmer
Wood fired porcelain triangle faceted vase with oribe, ash and oxblood glazes and kintsugi
7.5 x 3 x 3 inches

Oxblood and oribe glaze; porcelain; wood and fire. These are the principle ingredients that combine in Frances Palmer’s two large-scale vases at The Gerald Luss House. Bigger than her usual scale, these noble pots fairly burst with life, even without the quince blossoms that she has brought from her Connecticut garden to put into them. Give yourself the exquisite pleasure of attending closely to their surfaces: the slip-sliding color of Chinese glazes moving into one another, the roseate glow of the wood-fired white porcelain where it’s exposed at the base. Don’t miss, either, the other smaller works that Palmer has brought to the proceedings – among them triple-spouted vases reminiscent of 17th century Delftware tulipières. There could be no more satisfying juxtaposition than these earthy objects and the modernist rigor of the house: like Gerald Luss, Frances Palmer really, really knows how to live. It’s a joy to behold.
