...another ceramic creation,
actually mixed media.
It is a new design, and it is like nothing I have seen before,
I am making up the name "yarn vase" it seems to work.
Using a scrap of fabric dipped in clay to embellish the vase
and twisting it about to create the leaf and stem,
next a small cotton doily also dipped into clay for the flower,
then a vintage button mold pressed with clay for the center.
( Here is the photo before firing. )
The inside and bottom are glazed so that
it can be used for a fresh flower arrangement also.
For the exterior, I chose to use acrylic paint for the pale turquoise blue
background and added pink paint on the ceramic flower.
The design was done with a creative cut out
of the clay around the flower petals, before firing,
for the yarn to be pulled through,
and keep it from running amok,
as I am pulling at the yarn while teaching myself to crochet.
