Tidal Pool & Ikebana Dragonfly Vase

Tidal Pool was inspired by a trip we took to the ocean this past winter. The wall hanging represents what would be seen looking down into a tidal pool - a couple of starfish, shells broken by the crashing waves, seaweed swirling around in the currents and the bright sunlight reflecting on the ocean's surface. We love going to the ocean and have some long time friends who live in Cambria. We had such a nice time visiting with them, taking long walks on the beach, perusing the used book stores and shell shops in near by towns. Tidal pool is a wall plaque 9 x 8 inches with lead free glazes in orange, tan, and blue.

Ikebana Dragonfly Vase is another in the garden series. I'm facinated by dragonflies when I see them in the garden especially the ones with fluorescent colors. This dragonfly has stopped to rest on a vase meant for a simple floral arrangement in the Ikebana style. Ikebana Dragonfly Vase is 5.5 wide x 2.25 tall with lead free glazes of shimmery blue green and red accents.
