That's pretty wacky. Looks like raku, but no idea who the potter is. I haven't seen much raku coming out of countries like Spain or France, so I'm wondering if it's American. Certainly a popular medium with Native American potters, and might explain the animal symbolism (animal spirits?) in the decoration.

I also thought American, but not Native, postmodern to contemporary.
I believe I know the marking but I can't remember...

Mystery solved!
The vase is from the portuguese ceramist Carmina Anastácio:

It's a stoneware sculpture.

Of course the mark is 'CA' and not 'VO'...
