Kissed By The Flame

Some pots are quiet, they don’t speak of carving or imagery. This one didn’t even speak of glaze colors or designs. Sometimes it’s a good idea to listen to the quiet. That would probably have been a better name for this post, maybe it’s the name of the vase. With nothing but a spearmint liner glaze, this piece was placed in the soda kiln. It’s about 11 inches tall so it was put in the top with a sculpture and a few other tall pieces. The soda and the flame did the decoration.



The vase is still very quiet but I think it came out well. I’m pleased with the painting the soda and flame did.

What is This?

The other day I was looking through some old travel photos when I came across this one from Palazzo Vecchio in Florence, IT.  I love the old building but I don't know what that statue like thing on the corner of the building is.  It looks like it might be some navigation device but I'm making that up.  I really don't know.  Do you? What's it look like to you?

I think we had gelato at the stand you can just see in the lower right corner of the picture.

  1. I know what it is. A layer of narrative.

  2. It looks like a stylized bird, maybe a weather vane or lightening rod?

    1. Hi Linda, I guess it could be a weather vane or lightening rod, I hadn't really seen it that way.
