Medium Bud Vase


The truth…?  Well necks aren’t supposed to twist like that are they?  But then again – why not!  Yes, most potters would have considered this a failure and chucked it on the recycle pile.  But I find beauty in this odd little fella!  The twist gives a sense of motion and fluidity that seems to go against the solidity of the ceramic material.  I completely get that this won’t be to everyone’s taste, but I love it in its unusualness!

The piece is glazed in Blue Mist, one of my favourite glazes!  In the extreme heat of the kiln, this glaze flows as it melts, creating streaks, rivulets and flow lines.  Where it flows away, leaving only a thin layer it becomes transparent.  Where it’s thick, it’s a stunning baby blue with a mottling and occasional dark blue streaks in the colour that really draws you in.  Where one layer flows over another it leaves a gorgeous tan tide line.  Can you tell it’s one of my favourites?!?!
