Tossed Ashore is a collection of sculptural works based on the concept of "seeing new". There is visual movement in the thought of a cast off form riding the tip of an ocean wave and gently being tossed ashore, crossing the sight of your path. Once the wave pulls back, the item left behind catches the glint of the sun and casts a deep shadow on the wet sand creating an illusive pedestal as if to present its arrival.
Axel Salto for Royal Copenhagen. Green glazed budding stoneware vase. Impressed Salto and Copenhagen factory marks. H. 200mm Axel Salto was one of the most experimental and avant-garde ceramicists of his time. His expressive richly textured designs are drawn from nature yet have decidedly modernist feel.
