A Twisted Pit Fired Vase Brought To Light

I had made a vase to fit inside another larger one. Firing and further shrinkage made the smaller one not quite dovetail so I abandoned the idea of the hidden vase. Well, maybe not entirely. I had made an even smaller vase with a similar swirled design. This did indeed fit inside the larger one. But now the question became, yes, but should it be hidden? I decided that after seeing the great colors that came out of the pit firing and the oddly twisted form, the vase deserved to be seen. This was the last of my non-functional vessels to come out of the kiln. I’ve posted a couple of different views of the piece.
