This little bud vase has been left unattended and unloved for far too long. All its brothers and sisters were sold many years ago and I heard her cry for attention. Perfect timing for the transformation series.

A small creeping vine circles the vase in its loving embrace. Keeping it safe and warm. Hopefully, in time the vine will continue to wrap around and help her with her only challenge remaining; finding balance from toppling sideways.

Go back to her birthday in 2008. She is one of 27 vessels of varying sizes that got caught in a freak kiln accident. The survivors ended up with this caramel glaze, which started out as a variagated blue. The accident also seems to have fundamentally changed the colour of the clay body from white to terracotta, where the glaze touched it.
