    The ‘Scholar’s Rock 11’ vase is glazed with the historic Eosin glaze, developed in 1893 and exclusive to The Zsolnay Porcelan Manufactura, Hungary. The ‘Scholar’s Rock 11’ vase results from a workshop held in 2011 in Hungary that artist Julia Kunin helped organize, between the Siklos ceramic center and the historic Zsolnay factory. Kunin, as well as the celebrated ceramicist Eva Zeisel, were invited, along with a group of Hungarian artists, to produce some earthenware pieces using Zsolnay’s extraordinary glazes, introduced in the Art Nouveau period. The rocks that she selected to make the molds were collected from the grounds of a 15th century Hungarian church and monastery.
