I call this my Chinese moon melon... I just love the shape and the green glaze.

A vase with no bottom? Not a problem...

A true testament to one man's junk is another's treasure....I had to pick up my daughter at a friend's house and at the doorstep was a box of pottery vases and bowls of different sizes and colors.  The friend's mother, who I discovered is a potter, had put the box out to take to her kiln to refire and recycle her "mistakes."   She was amused that I was admiring them and told me to help myself!  The green pot had a hole in it....perfect for holding string and enough room for scissors, too.   To create the top I glued the lid of a tea mug (which I had saved when the mug broke) to a round wooden base I had laying around.  The little brown piece is perfect for holding some ribbon...
