Question for the artist?

Artist's description:

Ceramics are a goldmine of inspiration for me. They contain a myriad of patterns that have inspired many works of mine. And this vase from the V&A museum is just such a piece. From the 16th century Ming dynasty, it is a study of how such a beautifully simple shaped vase can then contain on its surface such intricately complicated patterns.
The blue on this vase is more of a midnight blue than the Cobalt based blue used in classic Ming colouring for theirceramics and which I have used for the previous run of prints. I have also added a watercolour wash to give the vase a bit of depth instead of making it purely a decorative piece.

Materials used:

Somerset satin white, oil based inks and watercolours
