    Born into a family of fine china manufacturers in England and trained in the studio ceramics tradition, Mark Hewitt opened his pottery studio in Pittsboro, North Carolina, in 1983. This monumental vase is the culmination of nearly twenty-five years of excellence in his field. It was handmade using traditional techniques, three types of local clays, and an alkaline glaze formula long associated with Southern pottery. The massive scale of the vase showcases Hewitt’s technical mastery of the medium, and its form reflects an itinerant education in clay that has taken him to such places as West Africa, India, and Asia.
