Spring is here and with it comes a desire to be in the garden.
With a new patch of grass down I was struck
with inspiration to plant up the studio sculpture garden.
I have planted lots of grasses and some vines
which will be great raw materials for the basketry
that I often add to my pottery.
I also harvested some lamandra.
This week I have been working on
slightly larger lidded vessels.
this vase above slumped a little
but I thought I would see if I could
make a feature of it as I am feeling a
little slumped these days and I like it
when I capture a bit of how I am feeling
in my work.
Do you think it works in this piece?
This one above and below
I have made two alternative lids.
I find the hat can really change
the personality of a pot
Which one do you prefer?
Once again I am in a hurry and will
be cooking these fellas while they are still a bit wet.
We will see how it goes.
This post will be part of a shared potters blog Mud Colony.
