A little memorial urn, made as part of a series for a family who lost a loved one recently.
I was asked to make a series of urns in memory of my sister-in-law’s friend who was a gardener. Here is one of them, freshly carved and ready to go on a shelf to dry. Eventually, they will be glazed in a clear glaze with a light green on the inside. A subtle approach, but very much like the woman who’s ashes they will hold – small, delicately sweet and softly spoken.
I didn’t realize it until now, but I think the paint on the chairs in my kitchen inspired the direction of my latest test tiles with a new clay body – that and an amazing workshop led by Jeremy Randall last summer in Rockport, MA.
