Bear | Wall Vase
The black bear is often seen as a symbol of power. However, the bear also carries a more subtle message: a reminder of the importance of respecting our seasons- resting, playing and working in a balanced cycle regardless of where others around us are in their cycles. You may be in your 'winter', watching anxiously as someone in their 'spring' is surging ahead in life, wondering why that isn't happening for you too. The bear reminds us to take that time to hibernate, look within and rest so that we too can surge forward when the time is right.
This wall hung vase is a great way to add a little pop of color and elegance to your walls! Four holes are pierced in the top of the vase to hold flowers and, on the back, you will find a small, round hole which can be used for both watering and hanging on a nail.

Kate mixes her clay from raw materials and throws each mug on the potter’s wheel. She uses sprigs and slip trailing to create patterned panels that frame spaces around the mug for imagery. The overlaid images are originally drawn in pen and ink on paper and then scanned and printed in glaze. The image transfer (decal) is then applied to a glaze fired mug and is re-fired for a third time, causing the imagery to melt into the surface of the glaze. The image will not wear away through use and the mug is both food safe and dishwasher safe. During this final firing, small copper crystals will often begin to grow in the glaze, creating beautiful glittering patches of copper and splashes of orange randomly throughout the glaze!
