Our raku pottery vase this week
Flora’s Hope, celebrates a very special Roman goddess. Flora was not only the goddess of flowers and spring, but she was also the goddess of youth and her initiates really knew how to throw a great party.
Speaking of great parties . . .
Mark your calendars because Floralia is fast approaching. Flora’s festival was traditionally held between April 28th and May 3rd and typically included drinking, flower costumes, plays, mimes, and ended in a hunt and feast!
This festival celebrated the renewal of life, which is something I hope we will all be celebrating soon!
With this third wave of the pandemic, which has finally reached the shores of Atlantic Canada, we all need something to celebrate, and what better than this season of Spring and new life. I would also like to dedicate this vase to all of our youth, who are facing a tough burden with this pandemic putting parts of their life and milestones on hold.
What is something you are looking forward to celebrating when we can do so safely?
And what do you think of our raku pottery vase, ‘Flora’s Hope’? Let me know in the comments below!
I am looking forward to being able to see my family both here in the UK and at home in Norway, without restrictions. To be able to spend time with them indoors and do things together. It may seem just normal, but in the light of how things are, it will certainly feel like something to celebrate when we can do this again.
Just being able to go out for a coffee with friends will put a spring in my step. 🙂
I am looking forward to traveling once again and seeing family a long way away. I love the colours of this one….they are divine ✨
Thank you! I have been working on a series of floral glazed vases. If you like this one you may like them as well. https://rakupottery.ca/raku-vases/ 🙂
Wow, this one is special, really beautiful!😍
Thank you Tiffany! I enjoy the black crack in the glaze near the bottom. I was very excited to see it when scrubbing the vase after reduction!
