I throw the vase on the wheel and attach the handbuilt decoration. Then I glazed this one in my aqua glaze that has lots of nice highlights and glazed the butterfly in bright red.
Just a couple of flowers and you have a great gift... or centerpiece for yourself.
After the glaze firing I attach the pin frog (that's the poky, metal thing that keeps the flowers standing up!) with waterproof epoxy so that it stays in place.
These vases are so easy to use and make great gifts. I make mine with room for more water than lots of them out there. You don't want to worry about filling your vase everyday!
Measures 5 inches across and 3 inches high. Made for fresh or dried flowers.
