Can you see this>>>

I was reviewed by chicago's Newcity Art!!!
If you cannot read the highlighted section it says=

Other works of interest= "Nancy Monsebroten's highly detailed porcelain jar, a stunning example of a piece that makes no sacrifices to form or function."

The porcelain jar they mention is my Lotus Vase.

View of the Mississippi river from my studio. That sailboat belongs to my husband who has developed nautical narcosis over the years. (and he thinks I'm compulsive about all things ceramic.!!

Hi from the studio

I finally got a studio shot to include in my blogs. I know I like to see inside other artist studios.

Lotus Vase (Grandmas Perm)

I just unloaded the kiln and when I saw this piece it reminded me exactly of my Grandmas sweet, tight, curly permenant. I think I'll have to keep this one for myself.

Thousand Petal Vase

Although, this piece is extremely time consuming, the process becomes very meditative for me. The eight hundred to one thousand (no kidding, I counted) petals are individually shaped and attached to a wheel thrown base. The exterior is lightly glazed with a satin matte glaze for durability. The interior is glazed to be watertight.
