Molly Hatch “After China Bottle” Blue and White Cube Vase – Todd Merrill

Molly Hatch’s After China Bottle uses negative space to render the form of the vase that inspires the surface decoration.  Each vase is hand-built and hand-painted. The surface pattern  for the vase  was sourced from examples of Chinese ornament in the books of Owen Jones, the English architect who is considered to be one of the most influential design theorists of the nineteenth- century.

Hatch’s work has been widely collected, commissioned, and exhibited at art fairs nationally and internationally. In 2013, Hatch had a solo museum exhibition at the Philadelphia Art Alliance and was included in New Blue and White, a contemporary decorative arts exhibition at the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston. In the spring of 2014 Physic Garden, a monumental 456-plate painting, was installed at the High Museum of Art in Atlanta, and in 2015 Chronicle Books of San Francisco published a book of her work. In 2016, the Clayarch Gimhae Museum in Korea exhibited a selection of wall installations by the artist. As the artist works on a commission basis, custom works can be created through Todd Merrill Studio.

Dimensions: 10.75″ H x 7.25″ W x 2.5″ D
