Dear readers, as you know, I am addicted to pottery. I love simple forms and I love experimenting with placing it like sculpture in my home. Below I wrote about my love of painting and upcycling vases. I'm obsessed. I go to the Goodwill and I want to buy all the ugly, orphaned and unloved vessels. I have a limitation though. I'm not very good at spray painting, although I love it (see previous post here). And I don't have a studio space right now so have no where I can make a mess. So I am limited to vases that are porous in texture because they can be brush painted. This is the story of how one orphaned vase became two new fresh pieces of art.
I found this vase for $.99! Perfect shape, perfect texture. Horrible color, horrible press on flowers. This little vase is in need of a face lift. I sandpapered the flowers. Then lovingly applied neon pink paint.
Here is the after. Much better! The vase is fresh and new. I love it. I also created a digital art piece from the photographed flowers.
Here's a little experiment with the digital art over my sofa. Hmm. Maybe I'll have it printed on a canvas.
