Modern Stripe give-a-way!
my Modern Stripe Bottle vases, I've had a few 'seconds' come out of the kiln. It's to be expected, it's ceramics after-all. There's a lot that can go wrong at any stage of the process: a small pinhole here (notice the small dot in the green and blue stripes above- must mix slip longer!!), a bubble or mottled glaze texture there (orange glaze isn't as smooth as it usually is- too close to the elements? or what??) or a line that's gone a little off course. And unfortunately for me, the more vases I make, the more little nuances about the work I end up having to sort out.
Sooo, my loss, your gain- I don't have the heart to throw out these vases. Some may end up being sold as 'second's' on my Etsy shop, and others I've already given away to friends and family, however, there are 3 in the studio that I feel warrant a give-a-way on my blog. Just to thank you for stopping by, for the comments, the encouragement and the feed-back along the way.
So, please, post a comment. If you feel inclined, become a follower or 'like' the dahlhaus art facebook page and you can add another comment or 2 to the list to increase your chances. No biggy though...
I'll randomly pick 3 winners next Thursday, June 16 sometime.
Thanks for stopping by and good luck!
