I love the elegance of classical busts so I made one out of clay, except this bust is also a vase.
After I hollowed out the head I added braids with strategically placed holes. Flower stems can be slipped in the holes to make it look like the bust is wearing a flower crown...to take it from elegant to whimsical.
I glazed the inside of the fired bust with clear glaze and the outside with snow white glaze.
Once it was fired again I filled it with flowers for an unexpectedly pretty display!
