Whispering Pots


Artist Statement: This listing is for a set of 2 armpots that are interacting with each other. The dark-glazed one is whispering into the green one's "ear", and you can only imagine what they're saying! The green-glazed pot is 6 1/4" X 3 3/4" (15 cm X 9 1/2 cm) and the dark-glazed pot is 6 1/2" X 3" (17 cm X 7 cm). They are quite a lovely pair. This is one of my signature designs, an "armpot". I throw the vase on my wheel, and tweak it a bit before I handbuild and sculpt it's arms. The resulting figure and it's gesture are quite expressive; I love the reactions people have to these pots. All are signed and dated. I use local clay from Georgia called Lizella, and fire to cone 6 in an electric kiln.
