Winter Scene Vase

I entered this vase in the Muskoka Arts and Crafts theme show. The show was over and I went to pick it up. To my delight the vase was sold.

I'm still making vases. Last spring a palliated woodpecker was trying to build a nest in a dead tree next to the woods in our back yard. I snapped many pictures. This vase is my creation of him hanging on to the tree stump.
First I turned a variety of colors of clay. Scored the clay to give it a rustic look and added a few stumps on it. I  made woody wood pecker and set him on the tree stump. He was hand painted with under glazes and high fired with a clear glaze. I have him up for sale in our a new art gallery in Muskoka, Bracebridge  the

Both Vases are great! I especially love the Woodpecker on the tree/idea. These would make great conversational pieces.

Thank you for you compliments. They took a bit of time but when you are doing something you love time gets lost.
