The white spots on the bottom are from the white glaze used. Beautiful Vintage 1975 Glazed Terracotta Vase by Susana Espinosa. Known for hand- built sculptures - typically figural images. Her use of glazes is. Spare, instead she allows the fire & oxides to give monochromatic hues to her.
2" inches at top & 1" inch Opening. Weighs 1 pound & 7 ounces. Signed on back: ESPINOSA 75. You don't see many 9 inch Vases by her out. I have only seen 2 similar to this one myself.
THANK YOU - for looking.
