V A S E S


Sometimes it's nice to see how a piece of pottery
LOOKS as it's becoming a functional form...

 

The SW Vase above is constructed
with rough hand dug clay and has my signature 
hangie-downs to let you know when a curious cat
is investigation what's IN IT...


While the Fish Stenciled Vase has no such protection!


The Leaf Me Alone vase is much smaller 
and belted with leather from which both beads
 and a clay leaf hang. The opening
is lined with leaves which accent the floral blooms...


Both the Mikado (left) and Scrappie Vase are still
simple cylinders with pinch-strip collars; 
their form comes from what is there,
 their function from what is not there.
