what i have been doing for 3 days straight



here it is...
we left out a handful of 'steps'.  like scrubbing the insides with a wire brush and washing them.  like painting the five different coats of whatever it is i use on the insides... like attaching the bottoms etc etc.  first video tod has ever made and we decided no music or narrative.  its kind of funny if you turn on the volume and just listen to the machine noises.  we still haven't figured out how to make the transition faster for the end where we show a bunch of previous works.  oh hell...just make it a big screen sit back and take a break, it isn't that long.

i'm off to upload my first four skinny reds and four black and blues on etsy.  i have more coming just need to take more pictures and edit them.  hope you enjoy this, tod did a GREAT job of keeping me out of it just as i ordered!

I watched the whole thing getting inspired double with each minute. if people saw the process which goes into making something, they would hold that thing so much more dear to the heart--this was a great treat! Thank you, Paula!!!

Wowza. This is literally the only thing I've looked at online for days and was strangely calming. The photo display at the end was great!

Wonderful video!!!! though you intended us to watch it with no music I had the headphones on with Patsy Cline singing Crazy and I could still hear the sounds of grinding etc from your video. It was just about the perfect background music ;) Just a bit short though...Love love love your vases!!

really loved the video .. rather enjoyed the 'music' of all the noises, grinding machines, saws ... COOL! Obviously an enormous amount of work goes into it Paula and it shows ... LOVED seeing this, pat yourself & tod on the back cause this is one amazing video. The pic's towards the end look incredible with the flowers, love the really tall vases!!

kerrin...thanks for checking this out. ha those really tall vases in the end were gutters from an old abandoned house in Vermont, they were gorgeous.

Great idea, thanks to Tod for doing this! I loved seeing you Paula. There's a lot of work for the vases but the final result is well worth it. I went to youtube and saw the other two videos :) They are so nice and funny!

paula said...

I sat transfixed watching this from beginning to end. As Andrea commented it was strangely calming. Fantastic video!
