as i scrolled through cynthia vardhan ceramics, i couldn't help but be amazed that i had never run across it before. an absolute delight for the eyes, cynthia starts at the beginning with each of her pieces. after making them by hand on her potter's wheel, she mixes her own translucent glaze and signature custom colors. she then painstakingly hand decorates each of them with pigmented clay- all of which helps give the pieces their distinctive raised patterns and visual depth. inspired by patterns from bali to west africa, each have a story to tell of their own. i love the beautiful vibrancy of the colors, the unique shape of the vases, and the feminine daintiness of them all!
