The legendary Jasper Portland Vase is recognised throughout the world, not only its hand-applied Classical bas relief scenes but also for its distinctive, elegant Grecian urn shape, twin handles and pale blue colour. For her unique interpretation, Hitomi wanted to bring old and new together in this one piece, connecting Wedgwood’s history with her new application of natural forms.

She chose the fern as a decorative theme after exploring the archives finding that it expressed both softness and the beauty of sequence. Having stained the unglazed stoneware body a bolder shade of turquoise blue and replaced the classical nymphs and scenes with a truly exquisite layering of white bas relief ferns The Turquoise Portland Vase is a true work of art. The ferns seem to grow upwards from the base in an organic form, overlapping one another, completely covering one handle and reaching their fronds into the mouth of the vase. Hitomi’s evocative Japanese title for this unique piece is ‘Shōka’ meaning sublimation which from the Latin ‘sublimare’ means ‘raised to a higher status’. It is as though the piece has been transitioned through nature from something solid to ethereal.
