I'm almost finished with my second pottery class and here are some of the results. Similar shapes as my first attempt, except these are slightly more refined and a smidge taller. It's hard to see in the photo, but I've been dipping them in high gloss white and leaving portions natural and unglazed. I like the contrast. They look extra modern with these spiky tillandsia air plants sprouting out of them instead of baby's breath and carnations. Starting with my next class this spring, I'm going to start selling them since I'm running out of display surfaces in my own home. Would you buy one of my slightly lumpy handcrafted one-of-a-kind vessels?

Air Plants No dirt required and they come in a mind boggling array of bizarre shapes and sizes.

FLOR I shot this on my House Pet carpet tiles on the floor. I need a better tripod.

    No. No. No. You can't break these. :-( Is this a hobby or can we order these?

    It's a hobby, but I'm starting my next class at the end of the month. I'll probably start selling them in April-ish. Of course I'll announce it here as soon as I get it all set up for sale.

    they are great - I was thinking some of the shapes look perfect for forcing bulbs b/c they have the smaller opening at the top.

    That's an excellent idea, Brandy! Especially the tall one in the middle. I'll keep that in mind next time I hit the wheel.
