Italian artist Ambrosius Benson painted several versions of this popular composition. In this particular interpretation, Mary Magdalene’s signature ointment jar is a highly ornate and unusual lidded vessel.

carved ceramic terracotta vase by potterybyosa

i totally dig potterybyosa’s carved aesthetic, and her bold glaze color choices. get ready for some sweet ceramic finds today, followers!

Last summer, I dedicated my time spent in Ceramics class to learning how to wheel throw.  I have been determined to learn how to throw for a while now, and I finally came out with a few products I really enjoy!   This is just an example of one of my favorite lidded vessels.  The figurine handle is the Hindu God, Ganesha;  Lord of Success.  The position of his arms also suggest Balance.  I am a Libra. 

This just gets me excited for next semester!  I cannot wait to get back into it!!  Ceramics is both stress relieving and productive: my form of bliss.  I could make things all day long! -Not to mention they make great gifts!
