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
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!
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 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.
