Valentine's Flop...

by Eleanor Hendriks

Back to the studio and the blog after a very busy Christmas season...

I'm working away on custom requests that accumulated during the holiday season and on a special project. The Etsy Mud Team is having a Sweetheart Vase Challenge and our entries are due by Jan 27th. I keep selling, breaking or overshooting the deadline with my pieces for these challenges... I was hoping that this time I'd make it but I got over enthusiastic with my piece and over indulged with the flourishes.

Between the stamping, the carving and the heart-y handles, I think I've ruined it by doing too much... Unless maybe some slip trailing would help?...

Don't worry, I've got a backup piece and I intend to show a little more restraint with that one. Sometimes less is more -maybe not for love -but definately for pottery decoration...

Ornate might be right up someone's alley. somethings pieces surprise you when they are glazed. I think the handles are a cute idea too.

It looks lovely, ornate and delicate. I look forward to seeing it glazed.
