Another gorgeous Lark publication, 500 Vases in inspiring to the max. It never occurred to me to even really wonder what the full range of creative vase-making was out there, which is somewhat surprising since vases are what I'm most likely to buy at a fair or in a gallery. I love to have a vase from each of my ceramic and wood-turning friends.
Why would you want a book on vases if you don't make vases? I strongly recommend browsing through books like this one in order to refill your creative well. Whatever your preferred art form, don't you find that an infusion of inspiration from a totally different direction will often set your head spinning with possibilities? It's never a waste of time to go on an artist date with an amazing book like this!
It's hard to chose favorites as there are so many amazing, lovely, awe-inspiring, and jaw-dropping pieces included, but one that caught my eye and tickled my funny bone was this porcelain piece by Adam Chau.
I simply can't show you anymore, because I just can't chose. If you have never experienced the wonder and the beauty of a Lark 500 series book, this would be an excellent one to start with. I don't work with clay, but a thing of beauty is a thing of beauty, and this book is full of them!
