Sculptural Slab Ikebana?

Post by stardust* on September 18th 2016, 7:52 pm

I am often drawn to sculptural pottery, thing is it takes a while (and a few mistakes) to distinguish between those clever high street store interior decor 'things' (unless they have the label underneath) and an unmarked 'real' ceramic...o yes, eloquently put eh.
I think this time I picked up something 'real' ....I was wondering if it's Japanese Ikebana...I'm going out on a limb but I can't come to any conclusion about it without posting for help...
have those lifestyle interior gurus got me again.

the base looks like all those cheap Chinese imports but this is way out of my comfort zone

Looks slab built. I don't think it's a Chinese import but I don't know the artist. Could be 70s-80s vintage.

It reminds me of those designer high street items you found shops like Habitat to hold a single bottle of wine. Try it for size, it looks like it would fit and be stable.

I tried various bottles, but none of them fit. I think I'm going to have to disagree Mordeep....Habitat wine holder indeed!......It's a spice rack
