Thrift Pottery …Floral Friday

Medium small and old is the theme for this week’s collection of floral projects. These three are also the result of some thrift store browsing earlier this week.

I admit that I bought the decorated pitcher because of its brand name. The piece was made by Wild Hare Pottery. I also like the style of glaze ornamentation. A selection of various small blooms makes the overall appearance pop.

At first glance, I thought the artisan was trying to create a zebra. Upon more careful scrutiny, the made in Japan planter depicts a horse. The gold detailing is typical of other animal pieces from the 1950s. The pottery has a complicated design, so I used only one variety of flower for the arrangement.

The sponge glazed Roseville of Ohio butter jar has been re-purposed as a succulent planter. The simple project is made unique with the use of turquoise sand.

The Blue Jay of Happiness quotes singer/songwriter Macklemore. “Thrift shopping is all about going into the thrift shop and having no expectation of what you might find.”
