Tentacle topped Ikebana vases
These are the one thing I can't seem to keep stocked in my shop. The thing I thought was the weirdest, is the most popular. Go figure!
The super sandy clay I've been using for these is nice and strong, and has great texture. Depending on where it is in the kiln, it goes from light yellow to dark brown, sometimes all in one vase, it's like a piece of toast.
I love the drippy glaze combo, on the right one, it makes interesting glass drops. It went on a little too thick this time and dripped all the way to the bottom, but I really like the randomness.
The alchemy of minerals, sand, and textures is great fun, and I'm off to make some taller ones.
These three as well as some new blue dandelion rattles were listed in my shop this weekend, check them out HERE.
