blooming vases

I'm so very excited about these pieces. Combining felt and ceramic was something that has been on my mind ever since I took my first potterythrowing class last year. A lot of work and effort went into creating these 4 bud vases which were patiently sitting in my workroom until a few days ago. I was undecided on the style of flower to use, as well as the finishing look of the ceramic. Wildflower or not? To glaze or not to glaze? In this case, the vases are left unglazed. I loved the look of the matte ceramic, the lines and imperfections of porous clay visible. There are 4 vases to open up the series, and I promise, there will be more! My pottery wheel is beckoning and with the warm weather just around the bend, throwing vases in the garage sounds so inviting. Now, on to the photos!

new things

Not much to say, just a few pictures to share from my most recent felted goodies.
