So I had to pinch myself just a little bit when this vase emerged from the ashes of the raku process!
Before I reveal this raku piece, please take a moment to check out some of the submissions and creative writing for our ‘Name that Vase’ – Reader’s Choice Edition’. I am asking my readers to select their favourite name for this piece. Please help and vote for your favourite name(s), please like the comment that best captures the spirit of the vase for you.
In honour of the return of ‘Game of Thrones’ this vase is named ‘Mother of Dragons’ after Daenrys Targaryen. Motherhood is always challenging, but imagine trying to raise three willful dragons. The daycare costs alone must cost a fortune and imagine trying to hire a nanny, though Arya may be a suitable candidate, and possible future sister-in-law.
This art piece commemorates the magic of dragons. You can see where the flames have touched this vase during the reduction process. This moment has been captured perfectly and I can see a correlation between where the flames kissed the vase and the patterns on the vase. It was like our dragon friend Viserion was present in spirit before his icy reanimation.
Are you looking forward to the final season of “Game of Thrones’? Any working theories on the future of Westeros or Daenrys? And what do you think of my fiery creation?
If you want to pass some more time waiting for the final season of ‘Game of Thrones’ to start, you can watch this video of me throwing a Game of Thrones goblet!
