I love making these vases! They are fabulous to use for surface decoration techniques such as Sgraffito, Mishima, Stamping and underglaze transfers. There are also good form to practice your wheel throwing techniques on and because there is no trimming they are perfect if you don’t have time to get back in to studio to trim or if you just don’t like to trim at all!
