a tale of 2 vases…or 3….

Funny how you fall into unexpected ideas in ceramics, which is what makes pottery SO DAMN FUN.

You will recall that Mike and Sandra's granddaughter visited the studio a couple times this fall and wanted to glaze her bowl purple and emerald green, a color combo Mother Nature loves (eggplants, flowers like iris or violets and lavender, YES!) and I got into the combo too.  AND LOOK at what the 2 glazes do where they combine…..a luscious little moonscape, right?

Then I glanced at a cute little teapot I made last summer glazed blue and emerald green and noticed that IT ALSO creates a moonscape where the blue and green combine and I am like "I gotta do more of that one, too!"

In other news, you will the super tall green vase below.  You whack it here, then you whack it again and before you know it… :)

I've been admiring that moonscape effect (and the color combination, which I think you already knew that I adored) every single day since you first posted it. I just had to come back here and let you know. :)
