Veil

Bud Vase, made by Samantha Henneke, 7.5" x 3", Bulldog Pottery, Seagrove, North Carolina


Bud Vase - blue speckle on translucent matte crystalline glaze
$120.00  7.5" x 3"  

We have many "favorite" glaze combinations and this is one of Samantha's favs.

Samantha writes, 
"This color combination reminds me of a thin veil covering water bubbles in our dark tannin filled pond at the edge of our woods.
    I was reading the other day about an alligator's vision. They have a third eyelid called a “nictitating membrane” that folds down over their eyes when they swim through water. This eyelid acts as a veil for the alligator's eye so they can see as they swim in the murky conditions of being underwater."


We are participating in this weekend's Holiday Open House, December 17, with a few other Seagrove Potters: Hatfield Pottery at Carolina Crockery, Dirtworks Pottery, Dover Pottery, Caldwell-Hohl Pottery, Donna's Pottery Haven, and Johnston and Gentithes Pottery, Seagrove Stoneware, and Bulldog Pottery/Gholson and Henneke. For more information please visit the Seagrove Potters website.

Pottery Purchase Note-
We thought we would try showing some of our crystalline vases that we have available in our pottery shop. The Buy Now button below leads you to paypal where you can purchase the vase. We don't have the shipping calculated as we would like to be able to charge you the exact amount that it will take to deliver the piece to you (plus $5 for handling). We could send you a separate invoice when we find out the shipping cost.  If you live in North Carolina we could hold the vase for you to pick up or ship it to you, we will need to add 7% sales tax.  This is all new to us so if you do purchase this vase please hang in there with us as we are working on figuring out this process. Our phone number is Bruce's cell- 336-302-3469.
You will need a paypal account to use this way of purchasing the vase. Otherwise please call us or we could send you an invoice.
Thank you
