Hello and happy February! Welcome to the month of love and also to my monthly feature – ‘Name that Vase’.
For those who are new to this feature, ‘Name that Vase’ 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. You can check out a ‘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.
I am also excited to announce that I have been interviewed in a podcast about my pottery and we talk about the Name That Vase contest and how it got started! Thanks to the talented Alissa Head of The Just Craft for speaking with me. I had a great time speaking with her! If you are curious to listen in, here is the podcast episode!
Back in Name That Vase land, this month we have a very special vase for your naming, but first we must announce last month’s winner Doree with their name and poem. Congratulations Doree!
Speak to me
Your shell is cracked
But the shape
Be it in the eye of the beholder
Does not stammer
As you waltz your waltz with me
Take a bow
A fleeting moment
Here is our vase for February:
