Commissioned Porcelain Vessels, and Extras

The ten bellied, porcelain vessels on the left are pieces commissioned for a banquet that have yet to be fired. Unlike previous, similar, pieces these were created from a single thrown cylinder. Previously my ceramic vessels with elongated necks were done in two parts. The body of the form being done separately from the neck. I have finally refined the process such that smaller forms (between 12-16" tall) can be done from a single piece, making the whole process more successful and enjoyable. 

The three pieces to the right are a continued exploration of forms. The smallest bottle will be added to my epoxied body of work.
