Snickers really satisfies and so does the winner of October’s “Name That Vase!” Find out who won here!
My concept for this piece is to allow the process of raku and the flames of the reduction process to act as a healing tonic for your grief and pain, for mine, and for all who to choose to participate in this process collectively. The end result – transforming pain and grief into an object of beauty.
Our vase today, ‘Iris en Ciel’, tells the tale of sisters on opposite sides of a war, loyalty to the gods, travel by rainbow, and a goddess with a sweet tooth who was a messenger that would give the postal service a run for their money while bringing your prayers to the gods.
The winner of the draw will receive a copy of the book and their choice of one of the following, a Buddha necklace, Christmas ornament, or a rakutie (small scale raku vase).
Currently, as many of you know we have two big projects going on here at the studio – our book project, and our ‘A Healing Vase’ initiative. I wanted to update everyone about them!
What happens when Gods war? Our next vase ‘The Pillar of Atlas’ is named after a legendary rebel who chose the wrong side in a war among Gods, an unusually cruel punishment, and a final look that would stop anyone in their tracks.
Is my title a typo or a pun? Scroll down and find out!
You can receive a Christmas ornament, raku pottery owl, or even one of the vases featured in the book! How cool would it be to have a piece of art featured in a book that includes your name!
