So, to follow up my last post with my house vase success, I thought I'd show my progress. This is the first house vase I attempted:
It isn't that bad. It isn't very good either. It is wobbly and wonky. It is sitting on my shelf now. I have no idea what I'll wind up doing with all the "learning process" work. Probably destined for the hammer to be repurposed as mosaic tiles. My wooden mistakes we just burn in the fireplace. Ceramics is harder to get rid of.
This is my most recent house vase and the construction is fabulous, phew. Samantha gave me some behind the scenes form building tips since she has a former ceramics artist hidden inside of her super talented self. It helped!
Above, you can see all three. I really love the classic red roof one in the center and now that I know what I'm doing (well, a little) I might make more.
Here is a source inspiration photo. This is what is left of my grandparent's barn in Wisconsin. This is the milkhouse. It once housed gleaming stainless steel vats of fresh milk. The hole in the roof (where the imaginary flowers go now) use to have a fan/exhaust thingy in it.
