A Wee Little Vase

Over the last couple of years, I’ve been dabbling in trying to learn throwing and hand building. It’s a slow process for me. :laughing:

Lately, I’ve found more joy in decorating pieces than creating the vessels themselves. Fortunately, one of my friends is a ceramicist and will happily make pieces for me to decorate! So here’s our little collaboration. She threw the vase & I glazed and decorated it.

Time for the glaze firing. :fire:

Busted into beads & things to give it a little extra flair.

Great for holding brushes and tools. :smiling_face:

This one was totally inspired by a creator on IG. I’ll try to find her username and add it here. I follow way too many artists. :grimacing: I wanted to try black outlining with a long brush vs a writer bottle.

What a great way to do the “best part” - get a pal to share their pots! Very pretty!

Mine still turn out like wobbly little thimbles that may or may not have gotten ran over in the street, so I am grateful for her. :laughing:

I really enjoy your decoration! It’s really cute and the chain gives it just that extra little touch to put it over the top!

No, just used them in the little chain at the end. I have been experimenting with all sorts of textures lately. I’m working on one that uses pinecones to create texture on the side. Not sure how it will turn out… :grimacing:

Thank you so much. :heart:

I took hand building this fall semester at the college. It’s almost over. I made sooooo many bowls. Next semester I want to take the wheel throwing class. I really love this cute little pot. It’s inspiring me to play with the glaze, rather than just dunk it in 3 different colors and hope for the best.
