Carving Tiny Clay Creations

After posting about my tiny pottery, I remembered how much I enjoyed making them and for the past few days have been working on these miniature vessels. I’ve carved a couple myself and left a few to Asa’s expert hands. My favorite so far is this mini flower vase that Asa is holding in the palm of his hand. Asa used one end of the wood tool in the picture to skillfully distort the shape  and then used the other end to press the small dots on it.
I made a normal sized bowl to rest the tiny pots inside and show you the relative scale. These little babies will sit to dry for a few days before heading to the heat of the bisque firing. Then I will likely glaze them in a variety of colors and they will undergo a second hotter firing. I’m excited to see how they turn out.

Asa and Daisy initially fell in love with clay and then with each other. Asa began working with ceramics as a high school student in Santa Cruz, California. Daisy started throwing at Hope College in Holland, Michigan. The two potters met in 2015 in Phoenix, Arizona at Desert Dragon Pottery Studio. In 2016, Asa and Daisy were married at Red Rock State Park in Sedona, Arizona. The couple still resides in Phoenix, Arizona.
