Amphora Wasp Vase
Bohemia, circa 1895
This is my favorite wasp vase. In my estimation, the spiral handles and reticulated mouth set this one apart from others by Amphora. Art Nouveau in high nature gear!
You can see two other wasp examples in the dramatic Amphora video on YouTube: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fZocaTgTtl4 (or search for "Amphora Pottery"). There is also an Amphora Facebook page at facebook.com/amphora.pottery with many photos and information about this pottery.
