The Veiled Lady by Amphora
Bohemia, circa 1903
11.5 " high
After a few years of collecting Amphora and experiencing shifting feelings about particular forms and decors, I still love the Veiled Lady. The beautiful face peering out from the semi-opaque veil is so exotic. The diversity of glazes and artistry on this vase is extraordinary. It no doubt experienced numerous trips to the kiln, each time a risk that something would go wrong and send it to the reject bin.
This vase is featured in the dramatic Amphora video on YouTube. Search for "Amphora pottery." Also there is an Amphora Facebook page: www.facebook.com/amphora.pottery.
