I've been experimenting with clay coils. I've done coils horizontally for such things as making a bowl or vase. But here I made the coils vertical and of uneven lengths. The end result reminds me of a branch broken from a tree.
A friend of mine has been encouraging me to try making pieces using cone 5 glazes. I used such glazes on this vase and love the way the brown emphasizes the line of the coils, which contrast with the lovely turquoise interior.
