Update: lockdown has been extended to at least month end
We are restricted to our household bubble and trips for essential items only. Thankfully groceries and garden centres are still open (at reduced capacity). Hopefully this will be enough to combat the variants that are the most common COVID-19 here at this time.
Continuing to pull from how pottery has helped my PTSD, my plans to help manage the stress and anxiety are simple: I will be making a new vase for each day of this two week lockdown.
Or at least that is the plan.
I aim to continue updating this post each day with my latest lockdown vase!
You can also see finished vases (ie not raw clay) here
previous days’ vases
‘Making a vase a day keeps the anxiety away’.
Let me know what you think of the latest vase(s) in the comments below.
Thank you LA! I am glad to hear that the work resonates with you 🙏
They’re all beautiful, but 7 and 10 are my favorites! Glad this creative endeavor is helping you get through lockdown. It will be so nice when things calm down and get more normal again. 😊
Thank you for your feedback and support, Deb! I am glad to hear that the pieces resonate with you! 🙏
Impressive design. Can’t say I’ve ever seen one like it.
Thanks! Glad to hear you like it!
I like the layers on this one. So sorry about the extended quarantine.
Thank you, it was a fun one to make. 🙏 Keep well!
Lovely design. Praying the quarantine improves soon.
Thank you, much appreciated! 🙏 I hope you are keeping safe and well!
Lovely vases! That video is really scary.
Better vases than videos it seems! 🙂
They are all super, I especially like Day 1 as it has a wide neck – like one I could pick a bunch of flowers for ^_^
That sounds lovely! The tulips are ready here, sounds like they need a new home! (after its fired and glazed) 😛
I love this one; it’s all wavy. It must have been hard to make those waves on the wheel without the vase collapsing.
Thank you! Yes, the wavy ones are their own special kind of challenge! 🙂 🙏
Beautiful vase. Doing what you love is a great way to get through the tough times.
Thank you! I am trying to focus on noting what brings me joy and doing more of that. Pottery is one of those things. 🙏
This is an interesting way to spend the lockdown, if you don’t mind me asking where do you live?
