Heart Blossom Vase

Designer: Bob Moreni



  1. Begin with properly fired shelf cone 04 bisque. Moisten a clean sponge and wipe bisque to remove any dust.
  2. In a small cup, thin some FN005 Pink to the consistency of coffee cream. Pour the glaze slowly; roll the glaze around inside the vase pouring out the excess. Leave the vase upside down to fully drain. Allow to dry!
  3. Using a CB604 #4 Soft Fan, apply 3 coats of FN005 Pink to the outside of the vase. Allow to dry!
  4. Cut out 3 of each size hearts. Place the hearts on the vase using a CB604 #4 Soft Fan and water. Press over the hearts with a paper towel.
  5. Place some EZ075 Passion Red and EZ030 Rose onto a palette.
  6. Center the vase on a banding wheel upside down.
  7. Using a DB805 #3 Fan, slightly thin some EZ075 Pashion Red, band this color on the bottom section of the vase coming up slightly over the bump out of the vase. Turn the vase right side up when done and recenter it on the banding wheel.
  8. Band the top section of the vase with EZ030 Rose blending the color into the EZ075 Passion Red to create a hombre look.
  9. Peel off the paper hearts before the vase completely dries. Allow to dry!
  10. Stilt and fire to cone 06/05.
  11. Using a OB901 Mother of Pearl ¼” Shader, apply 1 thin coat of OG803 Mother of Pearl to each of the hearts. Allow to dry!
  12. Clean brush with OA901 Essence.
  13. Stilt and fire to cone 020.
