As the cliche goes, a glove is a many-splendored factor, and one of many many splendors of this glove is that it is extremely expert at holding flowers. Hold on, that is not the saying. At any fee, this ceramic glove is great as a planter and unbelievable as a vase. And in contrast to a few of your different gardening gloves, this one is waterproof and a superb accent to your dwelling on a windowsill, on a porch, or anywhere else you may consider.

For all practical functions I’ve decided to think of all hand written Tongzhi marks as of the Tongzhi period and those who are stamped, as later and with few exceptions of the later Guangxu period (1875-1908). Up to now this appears to make sense with the certain exception of marks from the Cultural Revolution interval, when Tongzhi marks loved an unexplained reputation on objects decorated in Macau or Hong Kong. One complicating matter is also that some seal marks that looks stamped could nicely be hand drawn or, stamped and then manually touched up. In those instances I believe we are able to assume that the piece is of the interval.
After a go to to the Nelson Atkins Museum, I found myself wanting to return to the English Ceramics Assortment. One piece that particularly caught my eye was a Josiah Wedgwood piece. I like his form language and blue and white finishes. His works are beautiful components of history that inform tales with their low carved reliefs. I really like how this one sits on a stand.
Jennifer McCurdy has been working with porcelain for over twenty 5 years. The artist has been really putting it to the take a look at structurally, creating incredible designs. She has been experimenting with how skinny excessive hearth porcelain might be earlier than it collapses within the kiln and how much it can be cut away and still keep structural integrity.
I appear to love the teenager and young lady head vases the most effective; I get pleasure from their recent-confronted innocence. Additionally, I think they remind me of myself as a younger woman, taking me back to that carefree time in my life that’s so fleeting, although on the time, it did not seem that way-time appeared to go very, very slowly. After we are kids we are, sadly, in such a rush to grow up, never realizing that childhood is the best time of our life. As soon as it is gone, it’s gone forever.
