Sensational Haiku Wednesday - Metamorphosis

Metamorphosis, 1997
Wheel-thrown and modified vessel
by The 5th Sister


Wedged, formed and molded...
clay upon the potter's wheel...
Glazed; refined by fire.

Beginning as mud,
the Creator makes his mark.
Metamorphosis

That's a stunning piece of artwork! And a great haiku to match.

A local artist friend is a potter as well. If you have a view minutes, check her site. http://www.sarahcoffin.blogspot.com/

I'll send her yours, too!

I really like this one, it is a simply take on life and creations as well.

Julie Schuler said...

Wow! That's really cool. I like the little curlicue on top and the glaze!

No better metamorphosis than that affected by your own hands! That is a very very nice piece, and a great haiku! Well done!

OMG I would have never thought about this. I can so picture the artists hands doing this. How creative and a great take on the word. Well done my friend :)

You are so amazing- stop making the rest of us look bad! ;)

quilly said...

This haiku fits your photo, and it fits the Master Sculptor as well. Your haiku has many layers of possible meaning. Very nicely done.

Ms Bibi said...

Wonderful Haiku like always. You are so good at this. I only wish.

Mama Zen said...

Fantastic take on the theme!

And, the pottery is gorgeous!

Tortuga said...

Oh Polly, I love this one! I took my first pottery class last fall and absolutely loved it. Even made my first wheel thrown piece! I loved it so much I signed up again for this spring, class starts in 2 weeks!

Beautiful piece you made, how'd you do the white?

Holly said...

I am impressed...pottery is always something I have wanted to try...this is beautiful. Fabulous haiku to go with!

Willoughby said...

Girlfriend, you should be showing your pieces in a gallery (yes, I remember the other pieces you posted pics of a while back), or perhaps in an Etsy store. Oh, and the Haiku rocks!

Nessa said...

Your jar is gorgeous. I love hand-made pottery and creating it is a perfect metaphor for the metamorphosis haiku theme. Lovely.

This is happy H day...
but I tend to spend time wandering about if I can, on posts other than where I am just destined to go...

And glad I did.
For this work was well worth that extra time!
:)
ooooo

Is that your piece of pottery? It is lovely. I went to a women's ministry conference in which the theme was "made by the Potter's hand." Each of us received a handmade and glazed coffee cup. The woman who made these made about 500. What a act of service.
