This vase was purchased for the Taranaki Museum collection after being judged the winner of the New Plymouth Potters exhibition held at the museum in 1996. Kane made this vase on a wheel and threw it upside down so she could achieve the thick rim without any distortion. "I have been experimenting with layering and combining glazes to give texture and interest. Using blues and greens to suggest sea and sky, I dipped, brushed and sprayed five different glazes to the outside of the vessel and a shiny black to the inside and rim to give contrast," Kane wrote in a note accompanying the vase.
