Rhonda Boehm Blossom Vase 1991

Rhonda Boehm 1991, Australia

A recent find – a lovely, large stoneware blossom vase by Barossa Valley potter Rhonda Boehm, dated 1991.

This piece is typical of the style Rhonda became well known for – a carved sgraffito design of leaves and floral elements and a beautifully balanced thrown form.

The clay used was a whitish stoneware, to which Rhonda applied first a mushroom pink slip or oxide wash, followed by a blue grey slip.

The design was then carved trhough the blue grey slip to reveal the mushroom pink beneath.

This used of oxide and slips was something that Rhonda perfected in her later career.

During the firing some lovely bluish highlights have occured bringing the whole piece to life.

Both Rhonda’s signature and kangaroo stamp are on this piece.
