Tall Valentine Vase - Free Shipping

$ 58 USD

FREE SHIPPING

Regular price is $103 with shipping

A beautiful decorative art piece to add interest to any room. This desert sunset red and amber ceramic vase - wheel thrown from white stoneware clay and incised with hearts and circles - is sure to attract attention wherever you place it. I'm really happy with how the glazes blended together on this vase to create the color and design.

And it's really stunning with flowers in it, too. At the studio I have some silk roses in black and deep blue that really set this off.

The vase is 8.25" high x 5.25" across at the top and 2.5" across at the base. It looks wonderful with or without flowers.

I signed it on the bottom rim.

 Bring the outdoors inside with this original fine art watercolor painting.

Fall Aspens Original Watercolor Painting

This original watercolor painting of aspen trees in the fall brings the outdoors inside and is sure to brighten up most any space.....office, den, bedroom, hallway, nursery. It's an artistic piece of sophisticated art that is very affordable. A one of a kind original.

I used high quality Arches watercolor paper and Yarka paints for this image. You'll see some texture behind the trees and sun in this painting which are obtained through the use of some fine quality rice paper that was adhered to the watercolor paper and painted upon as well. I love the way the watercolors bleed into the tissue to give a more organic feel to the painting.

** TITLE: Confetti Aspens
** SIZE: 20" x 24" matted and framed; image size is 11" x 13"

Artistic and functional, my handmade ceramic garlic keepers are the perfect way to keep garlic fresh without the mess of all the outside skin shedding in your cupboard. In fact, it's pretty enough to leave out on the countertop.

I make them on my pottery wheel out of durable, white stoneware clay, incising decorative holes in the sides and lid to allow air flow needed for the bulbs. I put a knob on the top that is whimsical and decorative, and complements the color and design of the rest of the pot.

I have these in a variety of colors and can make them in most any size you need. Most hold 2-3 garlic bulbs.
These lidded jars are available in my shop both online and physical shop in Steamboat Springs.
