Thursday Throwdown January 14, 2021

Welcome to this week’s Battle Of The Vases!

It’s vase-to-vase combat like you have never seen before!

How it works: We share two vases and YOU vote which is your favourite! The winner will then move on to the next round to face another competitor!

Last week, Mother of Dragons and White Walker battled to the death! Your vote has determined that

The White walker has been ended by the dragon mother! Winter is NOT coming

White Walker$68
Shipping included in US and Canada

But since it is actually winter here at the Alchemist’s Studio, we will hit the snow with a bit more heat!

The Series so far.

This week We are bringing out
A battle for the ages!

Mother of Dragons$240
Shipping included in Canada and US

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.

Phoenix Reborn$80
Shipping included in US and Canada

This raku vase’s name was chosen by Mandy Lewis-Houston during our July Edition of ‘Name that Vase’, who explains it as follows:

I would call it “Phoenix Reborn” for several reasons. First is a little on the nose since it’s Raku and forged in flame. The second is because, if I read your blog properly, this is the first work you have finished since your sad loss. Lastly because July has been stupid hot for almost everyone everywhere so this could be a lovely harbinger of cooler times since it’s out of the flames and hopefully so are we all.

Thank you so much Mandy for your touching suggestion. I am really drawn to this name and feel like she has captured the essence of this piece on many levels. You can check out Mandy’s artistic works on her website here.

You may read more about my recent experiences that caused me to choose this particular name here – “Working Through Grief.”.

Who will be your victor? Be sure to get your vote in BELOW!

Their fate is now in your hands!

We will share the winner (and update from last Time) next time!

Please note we are going to be moving these thursday throwdowns to monthly posts

  1. That is really cool you like Game Of Thrones and named one Mother Of Dragons. That show had been an object of obsession for me for almost a decade. Very cool and again, you are amazingly talented.

    1. Thank you Jared! Yes it was a great show until the ending! 🙂 Thank you again for your kind comment and I hope you are keeping well!

  2. Mother of All Dragons. I love this piece and could envision it following me around the world filled with fresh flowers from every continent. Cheers!

  3. Both are stunning and this is a difficult decision. I am going with Phoenix Reborn! I love the deep coppery colors. Have a fantastic weekend.

    1. Thank you Eugenia, and though it is a week later, it is still a weekend, so have a fantastic weekend too! 🙏
