A couple of weeks ago, mu daughter and I attended a bud vase making workshop at Heath Ceramics in Sausalito. We made one vase each, and today they arrived! The glaze looks completely different when you put it on, so it’s a fun surprise to see how they turned out after they’ve been fired. OK, so the vases are not perfect (probably because we’re not perfect either), but we love them. And speaking about not being perfect, I’m really digging the rawness of the unfired, unglazed vases we were allowed to bring home. Dents, bumps, scratches and all.
And did you know, that the brown clay edge around the opening of each vase is wiped off by hand? It really is all in the details, isn’t it?
