Vases, vases, and jars.

As you can see, I've got a few vases going on at the moment. And there's a couple others that didn't make it into the pictures. It's been a good challenge for me, these vase forms. Pushing for something new, different, expanding skills (I think). Regardless, it's been good to have some motivation for getting in and cranking out some pieces that are interesting/engaging. Hopefully, after these next two sales, I'll be able to churn out some more bowls. But until I get some (many) sold, I need to stay away from the whole bowl scene.

The top picture had a few vases in it, and one that maybe needs a lid. It also maybe just needs to be recycled, but we'll have to wait and see what happens with it. In the meantime, they've been good practice and something different for a change.

Second picture down we see a small vase (probably 8 inches tall?), and a couple of pieces which will be donated to the June fundraiser.

Last we have a couple of larger "arizona" pieces - nice 10" diameters. I like these jar/bowl pieces, and they feel really good to hold.

It was a good evening in the studio for throwing, trimming, and working on "stuff." That's it, probably, for this week. The next couple of nights are going to be spent doing inventory and pricing in preparation for the Northern Colorado Potters Guild's 4th Annual Potters Market this Saturday. If you live along the Front Range and don't have anything better planned, come check it out!

I mean, seriously - what could possibly be better than a pottery sale on a beautiful weekend in Colorado?
