The peonies are popping up all over my yard right now. The rain is pouring down on these luscious, scented beauties and if I don’t pick them now, they’ll wilt into mush. This year, instead of watching them wilt away, I am cutting with abandon.
This is one reason I love what I do.
I throw clay. I make functional and sculptural pieces. So, I have dozens of vases in various sizes sitting on the shelves in my studio. Short ones. Tall ones. Skinny ones. Fat ones.
These are pictures of some of this morning’s peony picking nestled in my vases.
