Hand-thrown Blue Ceramic Vase


40 per item plus $16.00 shipping

This is a lovely dark blue hand-thrown vase. It measures 8" high and 4 1/2" across at the lip; 5 1/2" across at widest point. It has beautiful even curves all the way around and was thrown by a master potter. Signed with artist's initials (JQE) on the bottom.

An interesting bit of trivia about this piece, the artist later went on to be a highly placed member of the Obama administration in the Department of Education. How's that for a piece of history? And you could get it right here on Simbi.

This is a solid, heavy piece. The price for shipping is for US only. Foreign orders will require extra shipping fees.

I'm very disappointed I was looking forward to receiving this service, I wasn't as prompt as I should have been but I was going to get back to her. I ...would have been a repeat customer. Oh well I'll just order it off more

About Barbara Oakley

I love the opportunities I find on Simbi and thoughout my life to give my own unique, artistic touch to domestic skills like quilting, canning, and cooking. I'm a trained librarian and researcher, so... I'm always looking for new tools and better resources. I find peace and inspiration in the beauty of the Pacific Northwest. I love to share my knowledge and skills with others. I recently opened an Etsy shop - Domesticated Diva LLC - for quality custom embroidered and machine-sewn goods. From graceful and functional to hip and quirky, you'll find a little bit of everything there and new pieces appearing on a regular basis. I think it reflects the best me I want to be. I hope you like what you see there. Browse, favorite the shop and some of my work. Tell me what else you'd like to see. If you'd like something custom-made, just let me know. I'd love to work with you to make it happen. You can also connect with me on Facebook where I share updates and interesting tidbits about my work: Contact me; let's make a deal!show more
