Where a dancer's hands bring clay to life

Black and Red Polka

This vase was named more after the dots than the dance. But its whirling motif brings it into the world of dance, where a pirouette is a rapid turn, usually performed multiple times. Because many of my vases are made on a potter's wheel and are actually turned into existence, I was intrigued by the idea of a vase that conveys the sensation of turning. 

Thus began a series of tall vases  (height range 15-17 inches) that are designed to hold living flowers but are sometimes more compelling as a centerpiece sculpture.

This particular vase is part of a private collection in the Gramercy Park Area in NYC.  Other Pirouette Vases are available at my  online shop
