Teddy Bear Posey 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 FN004 Red 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 4 coats of FN301 Marshmallow White to the outside of the vase. Allow to dry!
  4. Trace the pattern onto the piece using AC230 Clay Carbon Paper and a pencil.
  5. Place some of each of the following EZ Stroke colors onto a palette, EZ011 Sienna Brown, EZ038 Medium Mahogany, EZ030 Rose and EZ075 Passion Red.
  6. Using a CB308 #8 Flat Shader, pick up some EZ011 Sienna Brown on the chisel edge of the brush and stipple the color onto the bear’s body. Repeat this step using EZ038 Medium Mahogany lightly over top of the EZ011 Sienna Brown.
  7. Using a CB202 #2 Detail Liner, apply EZ-030 Rose to the nose, inside of the ears and pads of the feet.
  8. Using a CB310 #10 Flat Shader, shade the heart with EZ075 Passion Red. Using a CB-110 #10/0 Liner, detail the heart with EZ075 Passion Red.
  9. Using a CB110 #10/0 Liner outline and detail the bear with EZ012 Cobalt Jet Black.
  10. Center the vase on a banding wheel and band the top portion of the vase with EZ075 Passion Red. Allow to dry!
  11. Stilt and fire to cone 06/05.
