Venice Vase

The Venice Biennale, Luxembourg representative--Artist, Mike Bourscheid-- needed a vase/helmet as one of the components for his opening night performance "Thank you so much for the flowers". Although his plan had been to make the vase himself, after a time of throwing and glazing the rest of the vases for his project he found the large size was a bit tricky. So he asked me if I could try it out. . . . and he needed it in 2 weeks to make the shipping deadline. Ha!

Here we have the two part vase/helmet in use. Thanks for including me in this great project Mike!

Finished, but still missing the leather strapping meant to hold the two halves together.

Planter/Plant

In case you couldn't tell, it's spring! "What!?" you may say-- "You're crazy! I could see my breath in the freezing air just this morning!" It's true, it's spring, and to prove it I was activiely participating in a springy planter and plant sale at The Federal Store (2601 Quebec st) this past Saturday May.13 (soooory for the late notice).   It was a hopping event and I got a lot of positive feedback on the planters I had there. I will be busy making more ASAP so look for them at Neighborhood Quality Goods and Good Omen, as well as at my studio if you want o make an appointment and stop by. 

Below some pics for your review.
