Sketch of the Week: raku sketch

You may recognize the subject of today's sketch:

This is a raku vase I made during my first clay class at the Museum. It's a fairly tall piece, about two feet high, so I've set it on the floor. I've since filled it with fallen tree branches I've found on my walks. The river stones were already in the apartment, hiding on a bookshelf, but I pulled them out and set them on the floor here.
