Thanks everyone for your comments on my last post. Lots of good ideas for vases. Today bottles and vases seemed to be on the minds of several bloggers. I tried out several ideas for incorporating a vase with my house shapes. I didn't want to do the hole in the roof or the flower brick look, there are several people doing similar things and I don't want to tread too close to what someone is already doing.I also tried just leaving the roof off, but it looked too incomplete. I wanted something that spoke to what I am doing with my house shapes without being contrived or cute. I have these really great glass bottles, and at first I thought about gluing them on, and then decided to just make them a part of the house with clay. Dennis sparked this idea with his comment about a chimney. I liked that idea and still might try something like that, but the long skinny bottle shape sort of looks like the side of a chimney and I like incorporating this shape. I have a collection of glass bottles and I am always drawn to them, so they seem to fit with what I have going on in my head. A nice little vase for wildflowers to dry in..... or feathers..... or sticks..... lots to explore with this.
there was a magical sunset behind my studio this evening, good day, lots of new ideas!
