Taos Bud Vase is a shapely, well-balanced form, fully expressed and complex. Vase sits flat on table, shelf, or in niche, and beckons the eye.
I made Taos Bud Vase from an iron bearing stoneware clay on the potter’s wheel. The dynamic and mesmerizing surface emerges from overlapping blue, green, cream, and gold glazes. Three of the four glazes I mix in the studio; I purchase the fourth glaze commercially. Sometimes the glaze effect is a landscape, sometimes a seascape, sometimes mystical; but it is never boring!
Water tight of course and safe for live or dried flower arrangements. The vase serves as a decanter or oil pourer too and comes with a fitted cork.
