Made this in ceramics this year! I'm super duper proud of it! I did all the carvings on it and I think it turned out excellent.  It was glazed in celadon which is supposed to be a clearish and the others are embellished with boston brown. 
On with the pictures!

It's beautiful, wow! The carvings are so pretty, lots of detail and the bubbles were a nice touch. The shape of the vase is really neat, too, I like how it narrows at the neck. The color choice was smart, too, anything else would have muddled your artwork.

That gets an 'A' in my book!

Beautiful!  My extremely limited attempts at ceramics include a couple of very small, very crude coil items, and I am utterly impressed that you could achieve such supple shapeliness, the transition from the lower bowl section through the elongated flared top, AND a smooth finish...not to mention the wonderfully detailed etching (certainly your work is far more that than merely "carved").  The glaze and finish choices are equally superb.
