Patrick Nordstrom crystaline green matte vase, 1927

Patrick Nordstrom vase, created at his own studio in 1927, with drippy crystalline dark green matte glazes, painted on bottom of vase "PN Isle 1927,"  height 11 in (27.9 cm). 

The body of the vase is white porcelaneous stoneware that Nordstrom has manipulated into an elegant and classic form.  Spots on the vase where the glaze breaks to an underglaze brownish color are because of the nature of the materials as they melt and run in the kiln and are normal in Nordtrom's work.
