Vase by Roger Capron

About

This square-section vase sits on a square base, axially rotated 45 degrees, giving the piece a rather special appearance. The top of the vase has two semicircular cutaways which give something of the appearance of a pair of horns. Finally, two sides are decorated with an impressed roundel, suggesting that familiar Capron image, the sun, or perhaps a spoked wheel. Impressed mark to underside.
