here are the "rusty washer vases".........fresh out of the kiln and looking just the way i intended (a rarity in the ceramics world......or at least in my world). click on the image to get a close detailed view.

does anyone remember Rusty Trawler from breakfast at tiffany's ?!?!?! everytime i say the word "rusty", i think about him. so to me, these are the "rusty trawler vases."

sometimes after a 12 hour day in the studio, all a girl REALLY needs is a shot of tequila from a shot glass HOT out of the kiln..........bottoms up !

all washed up.

i have a huge collection of rusty washers that i have picked up off the streets around the world. i am drawn to them like a magnet. i find them painfully beautiful.......and the rustier they are, the better.

these vases are my homage to all the neglected rusty washers left on the streets around the world. (p.s......i LOVE clay when it is at this state.....slowly drying.....but not bone dry.... and not yet fired.)

a pair or a pear ?

i saw these sculptures while eating lunch on the grass outside of the de young museum and was very drawn to them. i think they are so pleasing to the eye. and then i realized that they were very much "pear" shaped and perhaps that is what drew me to them. for it is no secret that i do love a good pear.
