Three Tornadic Vases

Three Tornadic Vases

One evening in spring of 2011, after several days of travel and work through tornado-torn East Carolina, I sat down at the wheel and just let my hands process the week. This produced these three vase meditations upon the astonishingly damaging forces whose results I had witnessed. Clockwise from lower right: Expulsion, Collapse, Shredded. Heavy, heavy bases in a classic reduction teadust glaze made extra dusty (lots of fine yellow crystals) for the occasion.
