Hooked on a Feelie

Modernism
Spring 2005

Excerpt:
The sensuous quality of a Feelie is irresistible. Even after holding one, early customers often asked if they were made of glass or wax. When some complained that the Feelies ' delicate necks were too small to hold even one flower stem, Cabat would respond simply, “A vase can hold weeds or flowers, but why can't it just be a spot of beauty?” In addition to their finish, people were drawn to the pots' many colors and subtle streaking and crystalline effects in the glaze. The surface of a Feelie , even of those from the same batch, is unique. Their shapes also vary from short, squat and onion-like to tall and tubular.
