This vase was inspired by the classical forms of ancient Greece, yet even today, over 2000 years later, they are appealing to our eye. This elegant, wheel-thrown vase has Robin's Egg Blue over a rich Textured Amber Brown that creates a stunning and unusual look. The clay is a creamy-white stoneware fired to ^5-6. Approximate size: 9"H x 5" diam.
Black and red are two colors that always seem to work well together. What stands out as the single most defining feature are the juxtapositions between texture and smooth, matt and shiny finishes. The unexpected jewelry-like gold, red and black beads add to the mystique of this piece. Handbuilt, creamy white stoneware, fired ^5-6. 16.75" H x 10.75" wide.
Inspired by kelp during a walk on the beach, this organic vessel uses the rare golden Cuyama Shino glaze, made from the sediment from the Santa Maria riverbed. White interior. Clay is a creamy-white porcelain fired to ^10. Approximate size 11" tall x 6.5" diam.
This vase comes with its own flower-like embellishment. But even without real flowers, this vase is a stand alone sculpture. The colors were air brushed on, with areas masked to keep the colors from overlapping. The result is a stunning, colorful vase with as many different kinds of texture as there are colors. Make a statement with this vase. 16.75” x 5.25”
Yup, that’s right. This vase does not hold water because it was raku fired at lower temperatures, as opposed to regular high temperature firings. But the beauty of this lovely, organically expressive vase, is the use of both raku glazes and bright turquoise underglaze usually used on traditional ceramics. This piece is perfect as a stand alone piece, or with a dried arrangement. 12.5” x 6.75”
This contemporary handbuilt form reminds me of a royal crown. I chose the colors of a weathered patina for the top and a dark blue celadon, called “Storm” for the base. Continuing the narrative, the unusual foot is also the rich red-gold as the top. B-Mix clay, fired ^5-6. Approximate size 16” H x 6” Diam.
This vase is all buttoned up with bright colors on the outside and bright white on the interior. The colors were air brushed on and the result is a stunning, colorful vase with as many different kinds of texture as there are colors. You will definitely make a statement with this vase. 15” x 5.25”
Who says a vase shouldn’t be fun, this one is! Lots of color and textures, and the asymmetrical handles give this vase a sassy look. Just think, you’ll own a “vase with attitude!” 9.25” x 6.25”
The color chartreuse is just outrageous, especially when paired with purple and a hint of reddish-orange. Add to that, the twisted curve and you’ve got pure spunk! The asymmetrical look with the wing just adds to the character. Holds water. 8.5” x 5.25”
There’s something wonderfully fun about the colors of Mexico. There artists are not afraid to use complimentary colors, combined in one piece. Just like this vase with its chartreuse tiny wing, the purple and orange are fabulous together. 12” tall x 5”
Read your vase! With this vase full of words, it’s just plain fun to turn it in your hands and try to make sense of what it says. The vase has tri-pod feet and is glazed white on the interior with a traditional celadon on the base and an Indigo blue on the rim. 7” tall x 4.5”
I love these extruded, twisted vases with wings. They just shout “Hey, look at me!” I admit, they do seem to have a bit of attitude too. This vase has a textured amber brown glaze on the body and a metallic-looking glaze on the rim and wing. 9.5” tall x 5”
I was vacationing in British Columbia and just happened to have 25 pounds of clay I wanted to work with. But, I didn’t have any of my tools. So I went looking for items that would make marks, from a piece of broken wood, to a small PVC irrigation component, to some netting, and other likely suspects for mark-making. The result is the fun, organic vase with the gold top, a shiny brown body and asymmetrical handles — just for fun. 8.75” tall x 7”
These twisted, extruded vases shout “Hey, look at me!” I admit, they do seem to have a bit of attitude too. This vase has multiple layers of green glaze on the body and a classic celadon on the top. Oh, I can’t overlook the purple wing with the orange-red accent. Just plain fun. 8.75” x 4.25”
There’s something wonderful about black, red and white. Ah, but wait…there’s more. When you add gold — real 18 kt. gold — the color combination works all the better. This is a vase, or can be, but it’s also a small sculpture. The white shape seems to be waving in a breeze while the red piece anchors it to the form. The gold wing add the right amount of accent. The piece was fired at ^5-6, then the gold was added and it was re-fired at ^017. With gold the price it is, I use it sparingly. 4.25” tall x 4”
The twist in this vase just shouts “attitude” and spunkiness. The rich textured amber brown glaze is perfect with the addition of the Antique Jasper glaze on the rim and the wing. I love the asymmetrical look of this vase. With or without flowers, this vase shouts, “look at me!” 9” x 5.25”
Wild complementary colors a just plain fun when put next to each other. They’ll wake you up in the morning and add additional color to a small bouquet of white and yellow flowers. The twist adds a spunkiness to this feisty vase. 6.25” x 4”
I love complimentary colors. They are cheerful. Wild. Fun. Bright. Energizing. This short, spunky, sturdy vase has it all. The twist gives it attitude and it will show off your floral arrangement well. 5.5” tall x 3.5”
