Extruded Smile Vase

This was extruded as one piece and then I put a clear glaze on the interior. A couple of things I’m playing with here; gravity, since this piece can rock back and forth, and keeping the rough look of the raw clay. I love the feeling of the surface of Bee Mix, and I like the idea of putting a lot of the focus on the coloring of the flower with my work right now.

Another thought is about bud vases and singling out a flower. Does the flower need to face you to appreciate its distinct qualities?

I find a certain Mario Bros theme in this fun. As if the two flowers were connected. Just don’t put any killer plants in there.
