Vase, by Margaret Struckmeier

This semi-earthenware vase was made by the artist Margaret Struckmeier in 1987.

The coiled vase is decorated with slips, sgrafitto (a technique where lines are drawn through the glaze to expose the body) and a honey glaze in a design inspired by fish and reptiles.

During the 1980s the Scottish Development Agency purchased a number of hand-crafted items for its Scottish Crafts Collection. The aim of the collection was to inform the public of craft production in Scotland through touring exhibitions and education programmes. When the Scottish Craft Council was wound up, the collection was transferred to the National Museums of Scotland.
