This week We are bringing out
A battle for the ages!
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 wilful 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.
This vase pays homage to one of my favourite television series, that captivated me right until the rushed and disappointing ending, Game of Thrones!
I present to you the raku pottery vase ‘The White Walker’, rising up from the snow covered ground.
The White Walkers were an ancient race of formerly-human ice creatures who came from north of the wall. As the books and tv series progress, they become humanities greatest threat. Think icy zombies.
This vase celebrates the defeat of the Night King at the hands of Arya Stark, which resulted in the complete obliteration of the Night Army. Which, in case you don’t watch the show, is a very good thing!
Too bad the ending of the series was not such a good thing. At least we have the final books to look forward to!
And some people worry about laser eye surgery!
At the time it was commonly believed that an evil eye could cast a spell on the heart with just one glance. To counteract this the Eye of Horus often acted as a protective symbol.
You may be wondering how this 80 year old battle would end? In a boat race and some trickery. Tired of the constant fighting and upheaval the gods decided a boat race would determine the victor for the throne and the end to this conflict. Horus somehow convinced Set to use a stone boat. He had painted his own boat to look like stone as well, only his was made of wood.
As you can imagine, Set did not get very far. His boat sunk. Horus had avenged his father’s death, and many of the future pharaohs of Egypt were thought to be his reincarnation.
