    This is an ugly Vase I bought (for cheap!!) It was so ugly that I wondered if it could be something like GEORGE E. OHR Pottery. So hey, I bought it. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, right? ( I wear glasses)......LOL. Anyways I find no marks on it (rats) and it appears that it is made up of a mixed clay. Doubt we will ever know the maker on this one ----WHEW.

    I thought this was a chance to have some FUN and post your weirdest, or ugliest piece of whatever type of collectible you have....or why you bought it. Post your item on CW, and *THEN POST THE LINK HERE BELOW* so we can keep track of all these Weird and different items related to this challenge here.

    There is a world out there that collects the odd, the ugly, and the weird collectibles too. Lets have some fun.....

    Now back to this piece....anyone have an idea about the clay used here??

    ....and Hope YOU love this idea here

      Pretty sure this is a student piece...not a professional student but a "hey let's try pottery" student.
      I like the idea of an ugly contest!

      Definatly a weird design what do you think it is?? Almost looks like the tongue of scallops!! Like the ugly idea sounds like fun :-)

      Agate ware base.

      Definitely a student piece, it's a pity he/she was an economics student. My children used to bring me stuff home from school like this, although theirs was always signed! :-) William

      LOL.....I keep telling myself it might be the weird potter George Ohr, as you have seen his work??

      I suppose there could be pieces out there..........LOL. I should keep dreaming!!

      In fact Moonstonelover and I were talking about this idea too - an Oops category. Your vase is ugly but the glaze and surface pattern are very nice.
    9. Gracay2004 Gracay2004, 7 years ago
      Excellent idea Valentino and Moonstone, an "oops" category. Can I suggest a "what was I thinking!" category as well.
