Vases in Search of their Flowers

It would seem logical to me that every vase yearns for the flowers that it was meant to contain. That is after all the reason that it was created. This lump of clay was formed into a vessel, adorned and decorated, fired and finished all in preparation for the day when it would hold the blooms that it was designed to hold.

"Passionite Kisses" Roses in Blue Vase (Personal Collection)

This lovely blue vase seems satisfied that it holds a small bouquet of roses. In fact if you watch carefully it seems to be glowing, glowing with the pride of completing its purpose.

Unfortunately not all vases have the same fulfillment as our lucky vase pictured above. In fact a number of such items waiting to be fulfilled will be on display and available for purchase today at the Long Beach Antique Market.
