Happy birthday to Betty Woodman

Happy birthday to Betty Woodman—a garden enthusiast and artist who ingeniously experimented with her lifelong muse, the vase, and its multitude of sculptural possibilities. In an interview with The Studio Potter in December 1998, Woodman talks about her vases’ three dimensionality: “ . . . [E]ven if you don't actually put flowers in it, you can think about putting flowers in, so the function of the piece becomes conceptually part of the work. It leaves me with the choice of sometimes putting flow­ers in it, which I'm very interested in.”
