handled vase

black stoneware body, layered glazes

I wanted to play with coil-building, and I had a vague idea about extending the rim of a bowl to make a handle- I wanted to make an object that was all curve. This was the result. The handle section broke at some point but I fixed it... and then I underestimated the amount of expansion the piece would go through during the firing process, which lead to the end of the handle sticking to the kiln shelf. Lesson learned!
