I made Taos Pearl as a jar and a vase, on the potter’s wheel, from stoneware clay. The plunged lid has a unique and fascinating finial. It’s shape is toward oval; full at the shoulder and tapered at the bottom. The effect of layering glazes is an opalescent blue, at least to my eye.
I am using a glaze decoration I call “Taos” that consists of floating blue over the top and a copper green just at the base. I pour cream across the two and then give the top a dunk in the red gold glaze. The melding of the this layering will often produce a landscape reminiscent of Northern New Mexico and in this case, it’s a celebration of the sky!
Decorate your home with Taos Pearl. It’s a vase or a jar or a decorative stand alone piece. Use as a canister or even an urn. Use as a vase. Simply drop a fistful of your favorite flowers in and let the neck gather the arrangement naturally. Create a more complex arrangement. Makes a great wedding, anniversary, house warming, or anytime gift!
