Sage Green Handled Vase

Handled Vase

Handled Vase

This style vase has been one of my standard pieces for many years now. Arrangers like the handle and I like the clean lines and timely feel of the shape. Here it is with the sage green glaze that seems to have taken off in popularity this year. 13″ – $75 (Sold)

Blushing Ceramic Vase

Small Porcelain Vase

Small Blushing Porcelain Vase

This porcelain cutie was fired at Hiroshi Ogawa’s woodfire kiln many moons ago but I’m just now really appreciating the subtle markings on it. A hint of pink shows in good light–marks made from copper fuming off other pots in the firing. Will be a nice windowsill vase for short stemmed blooms.
3.5″ tall – $35.

On sale now in my Etsy shop.

Little Cutie Ceramic Vase

Stoneware Vase

Stoneware Vase

This little stoneware vase came out of our last wood-firing and is one-of-a-kind. Made from end of the day left over clay, she was just whipped out for fun. Threw her in the wood-firing because I figured, what the hay. She got such nice markings from the flame and ash she almost looks elegant now. A small beauty – $55. Available for Purchase.

Two Baskets

Two Ceramic Baskets

I’m sometimes asked what I use these basket forms for… Being the compulsive collector I am, around our place they hold small rocks, fortune cookie wishes, rubber bands, pencils and more. I even use one for gum wrappers and flotsam in my van. Wide base keeps it stabile. Add a 4″ pansy and voila, you have a hostess gift. Larger basket $45, smaller $35.

Stoneware Zipper Vase


This vase has a graceful opening for flowers to billow out in several directions. High fired stoneware, with circle opening at bottom of “zipper” for a larger stem or branch. 13″ x 9″ – $125

From a Display of Ikebana Arranging

Log-like Vase

This vessel was used at Ceramic Showcase (a few years back) for a demo of a simple Sogetsu Ikebana arrangement. The arranger first used heavenly bamboo and a few branches, then switched to this lilac and greenery. The off-center opening was just meant for this kind display. 18″ long, 7-9″ tall, woodfired. $175
