My Ceramic Gifts

Sylvie asked to see the ceramic gifts Camille made me for Christmas.  Here they are:

Matching coffee cups and a tall, dramatic vase.


And a smaller vase and prep bowl.  I don't know what the firing process is called on these -- Camille told me and I forgot -- but it isn't traditional.  She said that they are quite fragile -- maybe it's called pit firing -- because of the different process.  I love the rubbed metal look that they have.  And the vase matches my native American made sculpture from Taos that I love so much.

  3. I love them all, but I think the mugs are my favorite. I can tell you the stuff I get back from the paint your own pottery place looks nothing like this! LOL Great job Camille...!

  6. Ooo! I love that you have artwork from Taos NM. There are some wonderfully talented artisans up in the Taos area.
    That rubbed metal look has such a rustic patina, it looks so old world and beautiful.

    As I was scrolling down your blog while reading, at first I thought that the blue vase was a cowboy boot because of it's shape and the texture looks sort of like a bandana. :)
