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.
