Beavers and Exhibition A collaborated with Powerhouse to produce the editions for this series. The artist first designed and hand-sculpted the prototype for her Vase Lips sculptures from which Powerhouse’s ceramic fabricators created a plaster mold of the original. The mold was used to slip cast the edition of 25. The Powerhouse team worked closely with Beavers to formulate custom glazes to achieve the desired palette for the works. Each sculpture was cast, finished, and hand-painted with the bespoke glazes.
The Vase Lips series was released as an exclusive edition on ExhibitionA.com in January 2022.
