This series was the final project for a wheel throwing course I took during college. The vessels were inspired by the way my Mom decorates her home with dried plants and Karl Blossfeldt's photography. Each vessel started similarly, as about two pounds of clay, thrown to about the size and shape of a chubby Sake Jar or simple vase vessel. From here, they were manipulated into the motley crew shown below. Each one is inspired by textures and shapes found in nature and can hold all types of things.
