I made this vase in my ceramics class this semester. it is built with the coil method. The vines are more coils, added after the base had been smoothed. It is glazed with stone white on the base and rhodes turquoise on the vines. Glazing is not an exact science, so it came out in an interesting pattern after firing.

The inside is done with rhodes turquoise

C&C welcome!

I swap, you swap, we all swap! I love personal swaps (and I make poppets!) Smiley

Wist-y goodness

I think that the vase is a really beautiful shape. I don't like the colouring much, but as you say it is an inexact science (and I've never really liked glazed ceramics).

I like it.
it's fun getting back to hand building after learning to throw. I've got a hand built Skull Salt pig and ladle on the go at the moment.

Glazing is the scary bit, especially when you have spent so much time and effort building a fab piece and then the glazes doesn't turn out how you want. I like working with coloured slip and transparent glazes.

I agree with tentbruiser nice shape, I wonder why the glaze has done that - I can only imagine that it may have been a bit thin perhaps?
