Kylix forms I am playing with. A kylix is a type of wine drinking cup with a broad relatively shallow body raised on a stem from a foot and usually with two horizontal handles disposed symmetrically. The word comes from the Greek kylix "cup," which is cognate with Latin calix, the source of the English word "chalice". Only moderate success, as I threw them in one piece like I do my goblets and I have had 3 of 4 with interior CRACKING issues.

I am still working on bird ideas. This covered vase is one I want to explore more. Working on sketches for bird clocks and money banks. I even thought it would be cool to do a bird chess set, but couldn't figure out which birds to use. Maybe you could give me your suggestions?
