Where a dancer's hands bring clay to life

Pirouettes with Hummingbirds

In the world of ballet, a pirouette is a rapid turn, which is usually done multiple times. Because these 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.


It was only a matter of time before hummingbirds appeared on the surface of these vases, joining in the dance and enhancing the sense of movement. 

This  vase is currently available at my  online shop
