Today's vase was made principally from cyclamen flowers in pink and white. These have been blooming on the patio - blooming more or less continuously for weeks. We are keeping them in pots since there is little chance of their surviving summer in the open garden, but at least a reasonable one for keeping them going indoors through the difficult months.
They are certainly in their glory now!
As you can see, some Dianthus also slipped into the mix.
One little red "Daniela" rosebud did as well...
...along with a stem of Russelia equisetiformis "Big Red".
This made for a slender arrangement in a little pot that I originally used to test a new glaze recipe. I used the wrong firing cycle for the test, however, resulting in an unusally blistered glaze - and little helpful information! At any rate, the size and shape were right for today's material so it was pressed into service.
