Ceramic vase by renowned NZ ceramic artist Bob Steiner

The plastic nature of clay is often lost in the moulded production of pottery. With the Cuba series Bob has endeavoured to bring a sense of the soft, plastic nature of the clay while making a bold and functional form.

The Cuba Vase was made spontaneously by manipulating plastic clay. The clay was rolled out into a thick snake like roll, cut off and stood on end.

About the Puka:

The puka is distributed in lowland forests throughout New Zealand.  It is more common in the North Island and on the west coast of the South Island, and is very local to the east of the main divide. The leaves of the puka are wide, large and glossy, very thick with markedly unequal sides at the base.  They appear bright green/yellow-green above and are pale beneath. The puka is also known as akapuka.
