Bud Vase #4

Honestly?  This little bottle vase is one of my all-time favourites.  Its got a simple, classic, minimalistic charm to it  – and its small size just adds to its charm.  I just love everything about this little guy, especially the darker burn-out line where the glaze meets the bare clay body.  Enough said really!

It’s glazed in Mussel Shoals, a beautiful semi-gloss white glaze with cream/translucent flecks.  These flecks are what gives the glaze it’s name as they are made by incorporating locally collect mussel shells, ground up and mixed into the glaze formula that I developed from scratch.  I know it sounds silly, but the glaze has a very textural ‘softness’ to it which I just adore and I hope you do too.
