Meduim Bud Vase


This latest batch of pieces is all about variations on a form.  To be 100% honest, some of it is down to me not being able to perfectly replicate a piece, and that’s what this throwing session was about.  But in the end, I was quite pleased and surprised at how much just a little variation in the shape can give such a different character to the piece – so I decided to embrace the differences.

The main body of this piece is shallower than the others in this batch, giving it a more sensuous sweeping curve.  It’s vaguely reminiscent of a Hershey’s Kiss (a bit of an American reference I know, but these little chocolates are becoming ubiquitous these days!).

A NOTE – the glaze ran down this pot unevenly creating a wonderful asymmetrical shape that I love (I’ve tried to illustrate this in the photos).  However, the OCD and fans of symmetry, should maybe choose another piece! Haha!

This piece is glazed in Aegean Turquoise. It’s a wonderfully flowy glaze that occasionally flows right off the piece!  As it flows it creates lovely rivulets in various shades of vibrant turquoise.  Where it leaves the glaze thin it’s transparent, whereas at the bottom of the flow it leave a thick drip which is rich and bright.  I love the way this works against a tan clay body as the combination is so reminiscent of warm blue seas lapping Sandy beaches on summer holidays!
