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!

Fired to 2200 degrees F.  Yes, it is water tight.  Create a robust floral arrangement along the curved linear line.  Holds flowers quite well.  Sits flat and is stable.
