Creating ceramic heirloom pieces.

 For a friend's daughter's wedding, I incorporated a couple of 

vintage doilies, made by her grandmother, into ceramic vases. 

Carefully dipping the vintage lace into clay slip and draping it creatively

 onto the wet form, before kiln firing.

I love how the lace looks like it is still cotton, 

even after it has been fired.

You need to touch it to realize the difference.

Another fun experiment using a vintage appliqué
on a vase form.

And now her daughter has an heirloom piece that 

she might actually use, considering that she is not fond of doilies on dressers!
