Yesterday they were thrown. Today they were stamped & altered.
Tomorrow they’ll get  some color slip accents, a hole for hanging and then they’re set to dry.
Once they’ve been fired in the soda kiln, these vases will be perfect for hanging flowers
on the wall… up & out of the way.

I really like your work! The stamping has inspired me to delve to new depths of surface decoration. I’m a mom of some 27 years and did lots of art (including ceramics ) in college, then got married and took a long bit of a break to enjoy raising my kids. I have a just-15 year old at home now and she loves to encourage me in what I’m doing. It’s been a re-learning process but having a friend with a kiln helps a lot!!! Searching Pinterest, I found your work and am more and more inspired! Thank you for sharing pictures as well as techniques. Cheers! Sharon
