Description

I made Rio Oval Vase on the potter’s wheel without a bottom; then altered it into an oval and attached a floor.  Sounds easy, right?  Well, it takes a bit of massaging to get the entire piece to line up to the oval form without overworking it.  I find the process quite pleasing and I love the result.

I chose to leave the throwing lines in the piece for interest.  The body is stained with a red iron oxide (rio).  The upper portion and interior glazed with a cream rust.

Cut your favorite crop of flowers to suit the height of the vase and spread them along the length of the piece.  Rio Oval Vase will hold a robust arrangement.  For simpler arrangements, fit a floral block in the bottom to hold fewer flowers in place.  You can be creative.
