In the last two weeks, I made a couple more of these...
and a number of tile panels.
All the above panels will get special frames made of copper. I just bought nearly $500 in copper sheet. My nephew, Tim -Tim Lawrance Eberhardt, is making frames for some of my tiles. Here he is holding a recent frame for a small tile and he is in the process of making a frame for the finished panel on the table in front of him.
For some reason, I started throwing tall, very thin vases. This is the first. It is both a bud vase and a candle holder! How clever!
I kinda liked it and I made another. It is 17" tall and it is hollow all the way down. How many influences do you see? I few I KNOW are there are Amphora, Galle, Tiffany, Teco and Rorstrand. There are more and I owe them all. Because everything is white, you can't see the carving and the theme. You will have to wait for the glazed version, which is a long way off.
I made a couple of gourds with some scrap clay.
A couple more tile panels-
Another bud vase/candleholder where the theme is the flower sprouting from a bulb. It is finished and turned out very nice. I just didn't take a pic of the finished piece.
And a picture of the backyard again. Not finished yet. Seems like everything I do takes months. Especially the "secret project." Though I am happy to say that I finished my end of that project just today and now it goes to some one else's hands for the next month. It is going to be killer! I don't think I have ever seem any stateside potters make what I am working on, though I have seen a few pieces similiar in spirit and function (function???) made by European potters -Martin Brothers in particular. Onward.
