Agave Pod Vase
Created by Christine Adcock and Michael Adcock
The clay vessel is hand thrown on the potters wheel, and when partially dried, a grid of carefully shaped holes are impressed through the wall of the vase. The vase is then pit fired to blacken the clay. After firing, the vase is inlaid with the dyed seed pods of the Blue Agave, the Century Plant. The foot and rim of the vase are woven with dyed Lecheguilla fiber. An insert should be used for cut-flower display.
