Description These vases tell the story of a mishap during firing. We don’t usually see mistakes from the kiln because they have been discarded. Many objects are fired at the same time, so when loading the kiln, it is important to make sure that objects do not touch one another. However, sometimes accidents occur, as can be seen in these vases whose glazes melted together in the firing process, permanently joining them.
Provenance Acquired by William T. or Henry Walters, Baltimore; by bequest to Walters Art Museum, 1931.
