A super Louis Hudson wheel vase, made in Cornwall in the 1970s.
Round with flat edges, disc or coin like shape. Different pattern on each circular face, with plain sides. Carefully applied patterns; concentric triangles or zig-zags to one side and concentric ovals with random runic patterns to the other. Good sized slot at the top for flowers - would hold a dozen stems.
Louis Hudson opened a pottery in Trethevy Cornwall in 1971, closing in 1983. His work includes lamp bases, wheel vases, slab vases & cylinder vases in stoneware featuring distinctive geometric mouldings that reflected Cornish ceramics of the time. This is a fascinating vase with deliberate irregularities (hand applied patterns) which reflects its handmade studio pottery nature, and giving it great character. The distinctive patterns are Runic/Celtic inspired with a Modernist/Brutalist appearance. 
Lovely organic natural earthy neutral tones. Beige neutral background colour, with unglazed and glazed tan brown coloured raised patterns. Would make a fab addition for any collector of Louis Hudson, Cornish or studio pottery and would complement any retro, vintage, 70s, modernist, minimalist or modern interior. 
In good condition, an unsigned example. Some pencil-like marks to one side and a vintage baseline imperfection, both pictured.
A mid sized 14cm wide x 13.5cm tall x 6cm deepest.
Includes P&P to the UK.
