Good Morning!!!!  It's time for the first Thursday Challenge of the Month.  In a previous life, I was a ceramics teacher, so I thought we would do an Art Challenge this month based on different vessels.  This week I fell in love with the two vessels below.

As if lifted from the wreckage of the Titanic, ceramic artist Mary O’Malley creates sculptural porcelain teapots, cups, and vases adorned with barnacles, tentacles, and other living sea creatures (she refers to them as “porcelain crustaceans”).

I  think I have a vessel I bought in Mexico that I can use for this one.  Let me see what I can do.

I had fun doing this because I enjoy this pot so very much.  Here's my link.

I don't have any fancy pots. Not sure I understand the challenge. Must we use a pot or maybe the colors??

I'm with you,Belle..most of my pots are in my kitchen cupboards.  But I do think I might have one or two pieces that would work.

I think you can use any inspiration you get from the pots Monica posted.  Color, nautical theme, the gold trim, etc.  I also like the coral, gold, white, color combo in the bottom pot. Pretty much whatever inspires you about the 2 pictures she posted.

Thanks Melanie. I think I will go for the colors.

Thanks, Melanie.  That's exactly it.  Personally, I like the white in the first photo and am thinking about doing something in all white.

Okay, here's mine: Thank You Card

 

I really liked the all white of the first vessel and the fluid movement of the branches.  HTH

I went with a very literal interpretation...when you said "vessel"  these photos jumped right into my head.

I was inspired by the white branches of the first image and the cream, gold and red-orange of the second to create Okinawan Lion Dog.

I chose the first vessel - can't seem to get away from the white (Diane - and red) So here is a photo I took today of the BIRCH trees in bloom.

I went with interpreting the movement and white of the first vessel, and used a touch of color from the second one. Great challenge.
