Here's a Friday pick-me-up for you. I'm not a huge handmade pottery person, but when I saw Heather Braun-Dahl's chromatic vases online I immediately bookmarked them for another look. An abstract artist who double majored in painting and ceramics, Heather has an eye for simple but arresting shapes and colors.She lives and works at a small studio in Vancouver, where she creates vases, dishes, teapots, and other objects from slip-cast, wheel-thrown, or hand-built clay that she then glazes by hand using colors she mixes herself.
Note: Heather is out of the studio until March 26, and then again from March 30 to April 4. New orders won't be shipped until after April 4, but the Modern Stripe Bottle Vases can be purchased through Room6 in Vancouver, BC.

Colorful ceramics, all made by hand exclusively by Heather Dahl in a little Vancouver studio where she wheel-throws, hand-builds or slip-casts my original designs, and then hand-paints her own glazes onto the pots.
