Fashionable Flowers

Slip your flowers into this perfect little black number. Handmade using a combination of throwing and coil-building techniques to fashion its curves, each piece is one-of-a-kind. Designed to highlight a woman's silhouette with a touch of elegance--like all evening gowns should--this vase is sure to turn heads and spark conversation. Handmade in Kansas City, MO.

Each is one-of-a-kind and will vary slightly.

“I feel that a figure in clay is a three-dimensional canvas. My goal is to allow the eye to explore the entire surface of the piece.”

Cathy Broski's work is steeped in archetypal and personal symbolism. "Figures, houses, boats and pottery are all vessels to contain things we hold dear, and sometimes those things we would cast off. I chose these forms to work with because they have several levels of meaning I find intriguing to explore," she says. Each of her pieces begins as a slab of clay that is thrown on the potter's wheel then hand-carved. Once the first firing is complete, she applies and wipes off a combination of terra sigilattas, slips, stains, and glazes, then fires it again. This process is repeated until she achieves the desired effect, in which the eye is compelled to explore the entire surface of the piece.
