Mindly - Organize your Inner Universe

Vase, made by Bruce Gholson, Bulldog Pottery, Seagrove, North Carolina

We love the blue hue of this matte crystalline glaze and its emerald rim. The surface has a satiny quality like an exotically speckled blue egg, or an unusually pale blue eggplant or gourd.

As we finish up in the studio for our upcoming holiday kiln opening, we look forward to the holidays ahead of us. We love this season, a great time to reflect on what we have accomplished this year in the studio, and to set goals for the new year that is ahead.  We plan and speculate on some new directions in our work this coming year. We presently have begun the foundation testing of new clay bodies and on formulations for several new glazes. Lots of ideas that have been warming on the back burner that we are actively moving up to the front. We are so excited about our future opportunities in the studio right now.

There is an app that we have played around with this year called Mindly- Organize your Inner Universe. It is an app that provides us with a layout to create mind maps. A mind map is a great way to develop a visual strategy for a new idea.

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
