A while back we had a stamp exchange and I received several wonderful stamps from fellow potters. I decided to use them in a quilt-patterned project and decided to make a funky vase. You can see the prototype below.

I'd like to try making a couple more, modifying some of the techniques I used in this prototype. For one, I'd use the glazing techniques in the original. In the other, I'd like to try slips for the different "panels". I even wonder how something like this would translate to a Chanukiyah (Chanukah menorah)?

I'm hoping to get to it once Father's Day and the end of the school year have passed, since that's also the end of my busy Hebrew mug time.

Another project I'd like to do is a blog tutorial, with photos, of my slip carving techniques. But that will take a bit more coordination, since I'll need a photographer.
