Where a dancer's hands bring clay to life

Marbled Blue Turning

A blue marbled-like glaze appears on one side of the vase's wall, but solid blue glaze is on the inside, which is revealed as the two swirls of the vase's neck turn inward and outward.

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 Litchfield County, Connecticut.  Other Pirouette Vases are available at my  online shop
