Invisible Seated Monks

Ok, so I hadn’t set out to make invisible seated monks, but what I had been working at failed to materialize, and in trying to salvage it, I ended up with these little guys. The first one on the left was a mistake, the rest were sort of on purpose.

What these turned into, at least in my mind, are flower vases. They can stand as is, or with a ring installed, could be hung on the wall. Also, they can be made in various sizes from very small to very large (IT buzzword “scalable”), and will be easy to fire because they stand up by themselves.

I’m kind of interested to see what those cracks will do in the firing.
