Version Two (EF-2) of the Tornado Planter has just started a long drying phase. With the help of Photoshop, I shaded out the messy studio so the planter is a little lot easier to see. This one is about 4" taller than the previous effort and the legs of the Wicked Witch are a little larger as well. The container is three wheel-thrown pieces assembled together with the addition of the 2 hand-built legs and 7 building parts. The entire work is stoneware and roughly 21" tall at the greenware stage.

Alabama, I'm hoping that people don't believe that I take this tornado theme too lightly. From my own experience of having a tree fly into my house from two doors down the street during a tornado, I know that it isn't much fun (and royally destructive).  At the same time, capturing some of the whimsy of the Wizard of Oz does allow for a lighthearted narrative of some sort.  And who knows, there may be a market for this sort of craziness...either way, it has been a fun project and I do hope to make some plant happy upon conclusion.
