Tulip Vase with Tulips

Burnt Orange and Sage Green Vases

These vessels are a new twist on some of my tried and true forms.┬áThe bright orange glaze comes from a helmer shino that really makes the sage green glaze stand out. While I get more control than if I’d woodfired these, the shino is still very picky about the amount of reduction it gets when I’m firing these, so still more to learn with it.

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)

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.
