What Do You See?

β€œRest is not idleness, and to lie sometimes on the grass under trees on a summer’s day, listening to the murmur of the water, or watching the clouds float across the sky, is by no means a waste of time.”

― John Lubbock, The Use Of Life

Like looking at clouds,
Are there any images
that you see in this unnamed
newly pit fired vase?

One side
Opposite side

What do you see?

More pit-fired vases


  1. In the first pic, I see staring eyes on the right and below that, a red dot that kind of looks like a small fish. In the second, I see the toes of a foot, but only the front half of the foot.

    1. oh i see what you mean! that little fish is pretty cute actually! thank you for sharing πŸ™

    1. lovely! i feel that way often about pit fired pieces as the way that the structures organize can be similar between lichen and what happens in the pit fire! I really enjoy the process!

  2. The first side I see a partial hand print. On the other I am animal in profile with his turned toward the viewer. A leopard or big cat of some type I think…


      1. all good! i understood! thank you for sharing what you are seeing, i see the big cat now that you say it!

    1. thank you Tiffany! you are always so supportive, I very much appreciate it! πŸ™ I hope you are keeping well.

    1. thank you, that is very kind! best to take advantage of the beauty of nature where possible! πŸ™‚

  3. On One Side, I see a shadowed face of a leader with a headdress made of feathers. On the Opposite Side, I see a devilish trickster sharing its laughs with passion. πŸ™‚

    1. ooh these sound like the start of a story! i can imagine the two of them in a battle of wits!
