Found Object Vase, 2010


Found Object Candle Holder, 2010

gotta say, been having a good time taking pictures of my remaining vases of the year.  i plan on making just a handful more (some are christmasy in character and keep selling out so i will replenish that stock as well as some special order vases)

snuck in a new candle holder see photo above.  i am in love with that piece.  i love that i have no clue or desire really to know what it once was.  all i know is it is now a candle holder, bone like in shape, feel....something i would love on my table if i had a table.  but you know me, i like making things but dont really want much right now.

will keep loading new vases on etsy as i still have 80 or so ready to go. for anyone interested, i do have more white birches , more blue vases, more texas praries, more blue speckled sparrow eggs, more big reds, and on and on.  its all about the vases obviously.  least for right now :)

Each piece has something to say, about nature, history, economy of space, function...I love how you get to the essence of things, and I just adore your photos. Bravo!

Paula, love these vases and your photos are stellar! I love the vases somewhat graceful ungainlieness if that makes sense....despite how it may sound, it IS a compliment!!! What a knack you have for seeing the possibilities in the found object!

paula said...

patti...i take it as such. thank you for your compliments :) it is good to hear, never get tired of it as i always wonder am i REALLY being creative picking up found objects and doing so little to them? i love it and i'm glad others get it.

I like to imagine what it would be like if several of us bloggers could meet up an work on something collaborative. A sort of artists circus with every angle covered - including music and dance. There is so much talent.

Grat to see what you have been up to and thanks for remembering me.
