Extra Large Vases

Today I made these xlarge vases.  Each takes two pots put together to make one vase.  I really like making these, but there is not as much demand for them as there is for functional pieces.  I don't really need them in inventory, but it takes about 3 weeks for them to completely dry.  The only thing I have ever had explode in my kiln has been one of these large vases, because I didn't let it dry well enough.  I always make 3 so that they can fill up one half kiln shelf.  I like to fill my kiln to the top and this way doesn't leave too much empty space.
