Functional is Beautiful Making functional pots is challenging, inspiring and satisfying. Where else can you enjoy something from the moment you start to make it, and each time you use it? Whether youâ€™re serving cool drinks from a pitcher, soup in a bowl or fruit on a platter, functional pieces complement your food and reveal your sense of style. Each of our presenters have developed their own functional styleâ€“some steeped in tradition and others going a step beyond. No matter how simple or utilitarian, this conference takes you past the every day function of a piece by paying tribute to the elegant union between surface and form.
Used in the Japanese art of flower arranging, Ikebana form the basis of the arranger's art, I think of them as a collaboration with flowers and vines. Any time I create an Ikebana I think of my cousin who has inspired me to fall in love with and make more of these unique vases. Plenty of openwork to attach vines as well as fully, water-tight compartments.
