Broadmoor-Denver Grecian Vases

no.026 2010-05-01

We were curious about the obvious size difference between these Broadmoor-Denver vases -- approximately 10% in all dimensions. Both irregular tops look like they were similarly hand finished on the wheel.

Different clay bodies can vary in shrinkage during firing cycles. However both vases were made at the same Denver location with a mostly white clay.

Perhaps the runnier gunmetal glaze required a hotter bisque and/or glaze firing?

Please contact us if you have insights on this or other topics. Thank you.
