A Mid Summer Night's Dream
(With apologies to Shakespeare & Poe)So, one of the cool things that happened recently was that I was fortunate enough to have a couple really excellent days at the work shop this month, producing a number of items of exceptionally high quality. Intro images are below, you can see more details up on the website if interested.
First up, we have a larger vase, handmade with swirls of blue and purple. About 5.5" to 6" high by 3.5" wide. More pics here
Next, a large display vase, made with a special technique of inserting a wet wooden stick into the small hole at the top during crafting to puff out the top portion and provide an overall eye pleasing shape. About 5" high by 5" wide with a footed base for stability. More pics here.
And third, a beautifully waved light blues bowl. About 7" across on the long side by 6" and 2.5" - 3" high to the lip. More pics here.
First come, first served!
Love's Labor Lost
So while some pieces came out great, others met an unfortunate end...
Alas, poor bowl, I knew him: a fellow of infinite jest, of most excellent fancy - until he popped off the pipe and ruined himself upon the floor
So i chopped him into tiny bits
And stuffed him behind a wall of plaster
Until nevermore would he be recognized
One of my patrons kindly offered this insight on my bowl... (thanks Cami!)
"Full six feet under thy bowl lies.
Of his bones are pendants made.
Those are swirls that were his eyes.
Nothing of him that doth fade,
But doth suffer a shape change
Into something rich and strange."
