Well, I never saw these coming…

What am I making with these composite vases?  This is an entirely new direction for me, and I am loving it.  I started these last week, and I threw the four separate pieces…





Which I then trimmed this week, and paired together…



and joined (here’s the shorter bulb, taller necked piece)…


Now, last week, I also went a bit crazy with the clay extruder, and I formed these handles, which have been setting up over the week so I could work with them…


I had no idea what I would do with them, and didn’t know the lengths of the pieces, or how they would work together.  But, well, here’s what I put together tonight…



Here are those handles again.  Maybe this can be like those pictures in Highlights For Children… can you spot all of these handle pieces in the final vases (and, yes, I wound up using all of the pieces.  I hadn’t planned on it, but I really liked how they developed)?


I will take any advice on how to glaze.  Any at all.

  1. HAHA! Awesome!
    WHy glaze? Just throw them on the floor after they’re fired. Shards are valuable, you know.

  2. No advice on glazing, but these are awesome. Try selling to a celebrity, maybe Russell Simmons – you could make millions!
