After making this Pine Needle Vase, I feel like a real pioneer. This vase is handmade from top bottom, with the exception of digging the clay from the ground and growing the pine needles.

Here's the whole process...
First the pottery vase is hand thrown (quickest part)
trimmed
little holes drilled
bisque fired to harden clay
hand glazed
little holes drilled again to clean glaze out
high fired to harden glaze

Southern Long Leaf Pine Needles collected
sorted pine needles
soaked pine needles
popped off end cap of the pine needle
and finally stitched the pine needle on the rim

It is a labor of love and it's worth the work. I love the finished look of the natural pine needle with the glossy pottery glaze. The spots in the mottled green are in the clay body and pop through during firing. The dragonfly design is carved through the unfired glaze to reveal the clay body. While weaving the pine needle to the rim, I created the handles by wrapping sage green waxed thread around the needles.

Lead free glaze
Size: 6.25" (across handles) x 5.5" x 6.25" (tall)
