It has been over a week since I started my project, ‘A Vase of Healing’ and I really wanted to express my gratitude for all those who are participating in this project. So many beautiful wonderful souls from so many different places in the world are involved, and that really touches my heart.
For those of you not in the know, ‘A Vase of Healing’ is participatory art project for those experiencing grief or pain. My concept for this piece is to allow the process of raku and the flames of the reduction process to act as a healing tonic for your grief and pain, for mine, and for all who to choose to participate in this process collectively. The end result – transforming pain and grief into an object of beauty. You can see some examples below of what we can create together through this collaborative process:
You can still participate in this project. Check out our original post here for more details. To participate in this project, please comment on the original post. I will be accepting entries into the last week of October. I hope to complete the vase firing November 1st, if the weather decides to cooperate.
Because this is a participatory art project, I wanted to give everyone a choice as to which vase we should use for this project. Let me know in the comments which shape you would like to see for ‘A Vase of Healing’.
I have also decided that I want to include this project and the resulting raku pottery vase in my book I am working on – ‘A Potter’s Dream: Myths & Legends’. For me it is the most significant art project that I have worked on. I will be releasing more information about my book very soon! So stay tuned.

We are also having a sale for the month of October on our raku pottery pieces and you can learn more about those details here. Feel free to check out more of my raku vases here. And be sure to let me know which vase is your choice to be ‘A Vase of Healing’.
Thank you again to all those who choose to participate in this project and for reading.
