We have run out of stock for this item.

Bob's smallest balloon vases are stunning in petite form. A popular and distinct style from the mid-century, we love Bob's modern take in pumpkin glaze.

Bob's got a great story though about why he calls them balloon vases... "When I first started making these, the clay would always slump or cave in. Several times I fixed the problem by blowing air into the narrow neck to return the piece to the desired form. It’s best to make the shape correctly and avoid using this procedure, but it’s why I call them Balloon vases." ~ Bob Dinetz

The Balloon Vase is wheel-thrown in pumpkin, a tone that was created by using a new clay with an existing glaze. Some glazes react differently to individual clays and Bob's next step is to see if the result can be repeated; here he has, in the pumpkin group of mini vases. Items shipped may not match photos exactly. This is a handmade item with slight variances in shape, height and glaze finish.
