Form and Flower

The piece featured this week is a bowl-shaped vessel I am working on for the upcoming exhibition in March.  Most likely I will inlay a blue or black porcelain line around the entire lip of the piece (similar to blog post 'A River for Inspiration'), with a simple clear glaze on the vessel's interior only.  I am considering displaying the vessel with flowers in an ikebana style, having a local Kyoto flower artist do the arrangement.  Below, the first image shows the vessel being thrown, and the second the piece freshly trimmed and drying on a shelf.
