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.

Pots I Love - Nancy Green Ikebana

This piece has been in my collection for almost a year and it gets used regularly.  I love to garden, food, flowers, shrubs, any kind of plant as long as it's not invasive.  Even better if it's native but I also enjoy some non-natives that seem friendly and beautiful.  The thing is, I hate to cut the flowers and bring them in the house to fill a vase.  I never seem to have enough blooms and I like to share them with my neighbors. That's why I like this ikebana pot.  I only have to cut 3 plants to make a pretty arrangement for the house.  Plus, it's just a beautiful pot.

This ikebana was made by Nancy Green whose studio is in Watkensville GA which makes it fairly easy for me to find her pottery.  She has a fantastic grasp of the Japanese esthetic, something I'm draw to.

It's been a long time since I've shown you any pottery from my collection.  I've had other things to write about, I guess.

  1. I like the simplicity of ikebana

    1. I do too but a lot of thought and work actually goes into a really good one. I'm not there yet, I'm just trying to make something pretty.
