About Undercurrents

Delicate wave-like patterns swirl around this gorgeous vessel by Paula Murray. Creamy white porcelain—her own recipe for clay and thin ocean-blue veins appear to emulate the natural rhythm of waves. Murray’s elegant work finds inspiration in the colours, textures and forms of nature.

“Undercurrents" is an exquisite expression of the rhythm of life's ebb and flow. This rhythm of waves breaking yet held together by the thinnest blue line.” Paula Murray
