Tiny Vases



First of all thank you so much to everyone for their kind words and a really big thanks to all my new and returning customers:) I have almost finished packaging and sending out the orders that were in stock so yours should be on the way soon. I had been so busy trying to catch up from Chicago that I really haven't been blogging that often. Now we have to catch up! I'll start by saying that last week I went to a workshop with Jenny Mendes who I have been a big fan of for several years now. I love love her work and I think you will too so be sure to click on her link and check out her stuff. She is a really sweet person as well as a great artists. She taught us a method of coil building which I just had to come home and try. She simply took a long coil and wound it around a dowl then worked the coils together. Here is a picture of some tiny vases I made using her technique. You will be seeing the set of them show up in my etsy shop real soon!

I love these! Is that a white slip you use or terra sig? & do you fire the white slip on first & then continue to decorate & refire?
