Amy's Birthday Vase

Since Amy finally got her birthday present last week, I can finally share it with you! No surprise to anyone, it was a vase I made in pottery class. I wanted to share it as it turned out pretty cool.

I used a stamp from the instructor for the texture, painted the first coat with a firetruck red undercoat, wiped some it off to enhance the texture, and used lemon yellow for the second coat. I then coated the entire inside with the clear glaze as recommended by the instructor.  It's done to make sure that I didn't miss any spots on the inside so that the vase will be watertight when filled.

Post-kiln! Pretty!
