Like its name suggests, this piece features a low and wide silhouette reminiscent of an alien spacecraft. The dark underside of the vase, which continues slightly onto the upper portion, abruptly gives way to an explosion of orange-red splotches on the flat top of the piece. Ringed with a lighter shade of cream, these spots give the vase an interestingly mottled appearance. These blotches culminate in a very small neck, and a mouth rimmed in white glaze. When viewed from above, the rim and the outer edge of the vase’s body form concentric circles that vary drastically in size.
