This unique striped pattern is done by hand on the wheel. There will be slight variations in size of the vase and the pattern since it is hard to control while the vase is in motion.
I offer 5 color options for this unique bud vase. All options use BMix as the clay to get the natural white cream color – https://www.lagunaclay.com/product-page/wc401-b-mix-5 and has a clear glaze finish to make it glossy.

I threw the circular striped bud vase on the wheel. Like many of my other carved vases I decided to incorporate a pattern that creates movement around the piece. I covered this vase with black under glaze and then used a trimming tool on the wheel to get the even white lines. Thus when you get close or hold this vase it does have texture and minor grooves, although not as extreme as some of my other work. The black under glaze and white clay body creates a strong contrast that is sure to stand out in any home. Since the spout is so narrow I would consider this to be more of a center piece. The handmade bud vase can also serve on its own as an installation in any room.
