A mixed media sculptural porcelain vase by Kentucky artist Larry Watson. The vase features attached circuitry with impressed cartouches and lettering, with hole cut outs at the the corseted neck. It is glazed in a bright turquoise matte accentuated with wax resist to reveal the bisqued clay underneath. It has a sculpted handle to one side and rests on a thrown, domed raised base, signed under the glaze at the base.
