Those of you who are new to my blog, might be wondering what is a ‘Name that Vase’ post. I am asking any of you talented writers, poets or dreamers out there who may be interested to ….
Name that Vase! Here is where you can suggest a name, create a story, poem or prose for this raku pottery vase. Consider this your chance to be inspired, a writing prompt or a creative cue. And this month, the chosen name and associated writing will be unveiled at my upcoming art show that opens at the end of this month! You can check out our last ‘Name that Vase’ post to see how it works, or if you are feeling nostalgic, you can check out the first ever ‘Name that Vase’ post that started what has now become a monthly tradition for our blog and readers.
This month ‘Name that Vase’ will be a little bit different, as I am asking people to submit their names for this vase and a story or poem that is consistent with the theme of the show, which will be called ‘The Myth of Family’. This show will explore the idea of family from a spiritual, cultural and emotional perspective through stories inspired by pottery pieces. Many of the pieces are based on various mythological stories that highlight family relationships, but feel free to add your own personal twist. Will your name and associated writing reference a famous myth of days forgotten or have a modern or personal twist. You decide!
We look forward to seeing what everyone comes up with! So feel free to add your contribution in the comments below! You can check out more vase stories here by clicking on the images of the raku vases on the page.
Be sure to keep an eye out for more posts about the upcoming art show and some special ways you can be involved and participate.
