April, thinking through a new vase design
Like a change in the season, I started wanting to make tall, straight shapes rather than curved bowls and cups. There's only so much that can be planned or aimed for, other changes just turn up: and it always takes some time to understand how a new kind of form will work. It is only when I actually put some flowers in this new shape that I realised why it works, that a vase needs to have simple form and decoration, otherwise there's a risk that the flowers and leaves are overpowered. I'd love to know what you think about this.
