Title: Iraq Memorial Vase

Artist: Tom Lane

Sealing 4400 names of American Air Forces that have died in the Iraq war on its surface, Lane’s ceramic acts as beautiful memorial and symbolic vessel as container. The piece captures a representation of the moment in time and the accrued sense of loss and grief as a single resolved entity, the microscopic text and pattern built through quantity giving a stark indication of scales involved, the artist simultaneously honouring the fallen and exploring how art might still accomplish that memorialising in a contemporary society. 22 x 6 x 6 inches Porcelain Vases are the finest in Ceramic Art. In this series, the beauty of glazed porcelain is the backdrop for casualty lists and images relevant to these memorials.
