This summer my brother is getting married. I’m very happy for him and as part of my contribution to his wedding, I have made the vases for the centre pieces at the reception. The vases were designed for short arrangements so that guests would not have to talk over the flower. I was given an estimate of 15 to 18 tables which is a lot considering that my usual production rate is at about 3 pieces every 10 week session. I had to really pick up the pace (and spend a lot of extra time) to get these things done… In any case they are now all complete.
Here are a few where I did something a bit different with (pictures were taken with my phone camera under bad lighting so its not that good):
A Chattered Piece
The green clear glaze was coming out very nicely on textured surfaces so I had used it extensive. This one is a simple chattered surface.
A colour clay piece
This one is a bit different. The brown stripes are actually part of the clay body. I used some dark clay to lay out a few coils over the white clay before opening and this is the result.
A Double Walled Piece
This one is kind of neat.. its a double walled piece.
A Carved Piece
This is one of my favorite pieces overall. It is carved with some butterflies over blades of grass.
A Nicely Glazed Piece
Another Double Walled Piece
Anyhow… there are actually a lot more than that but I thought I’d just share some of the more intricate ones.
