If This Vase Could Talk

Deliver an astonishing amount of sass to your surroundings with Bruce Fontaine's vase. The clay's rich, dark umber tone and malleability allows Bruce to create bold, anthropomorphic sculptures with added functionality. Fill the attitude vase with flowers or let it stand on its own and speak for itself. You know it will. Handmade in Oregon.

Oregon potter Bruce Fontaine strives to emulate the feeling of clay works by ancient and indigenous people in the world. Always charming, he often gives his works anthropomorphic qualities, that are often influenced by the colorful people around him.

"I begin each piece by drawing or envisioning the design. Next, I throw the necessary pottery shapes on the wheel and allow the form form to harden. When the clay has approached the desired consistency, I sculpt and add pieces, join forms together, and dry to prepare for the two or more firings that follow." "Although I have formal training in art," he says, "I consider my work to be, "urban folk art."

    Comments about ATTITUDE VASE:

    I got two of these and I would say that is the exact right number. I know designers say never have an even number of like things but I think three of these would just make me look pretentious! I love these vases. I love the feel of the unpolished clay, I love the look, I love the ATTITUDE. They are perfect. Could not be more pleased.

        Comments about ATTITUDE VASE:

        Vase was broken upon arrival. Very well packaged, though so the vase must not be very sturdy. I still wanted another one, but they were out of stock. I was refunded the price of the vase and 1/2 the shipping.

          I love the expression on it, and it looks even better with some pretty flowers sprouting out of the head!
