This is the Vase I bought in Patagonia

I buy lots of art pottery, always with the idea in the back of my mind that I will put them in a painting. I look for earthy organic colored vases and pots. Handmade is better. The irregularities of hand-thrown pots and vases are charming. Plus I like the idea that I am supporting another artist.

I purchased this lovely vase in Patagonia, AZ. I love the unique design and the muted glaze. There are hints of rusty orange in the glaze so I paired it with an orange and a Bosc pear, setting up a split complementary color scheme.

The lighting is simple. No drama necessary when the color is my focus.
