Whirl Ornament.

I love holiday ornaments that you can leave up all year 'round.*

Each one has been hand thrown on the wheel then hand formed to create these whimsical yet sophisticated forms. Although they appear delicate, they are actually quite strong and durable. They’ve been left unglazed and I’ve sanded the surface so they also have a very soft, appealing feel and a very sculptural appearance.

*I have a ceramic origami bird that my sis gave me last year. It's been up since since December 2007.
