Before Christmas holidays, I missed a week of pottery, so I had to wait until last night to get my pieces.
It felt like a mighty long wait, let me tell you.
A Brie baker/small casserole and a kinda jumbo candle holder.
I love making candle holders - and they are almost always glazed in Kaki (above).
They look old-fashioned to me that way.
Brushwork on a pitcher - I guess I went a little heavy on the green.
Using a community studio, you never know how the oxides will be mixed - I was expecting it to be quite light like the brown I used the week before.
There are actually 8 bowls...my son used another blue one for breakfast, and 4 are not yet glazed. I love the way the colour turned out on the inside (2 each of 4 colours by the time I get them all) so I kind of regret glazing the outside in Ferguson Yellow - but I did it so they would co-ordinate with the set of mugs I made - with a little surprise on the inside.
A pitcher for things like pancake batter.
I really liked how the glaze turned out on the inside rim of this one...but wait, what's that?
One of the unexpected surprises that comes with working in a (very) shared space -somebody's piece exploded in the kiln and a piece landed in my pitcher and fused there. Grrr. I am told I should be able to use my dremel to grind it out. If I do it carefully enough, it shouldn't wreck the glaze....we will see.
