I've been working on a new series of pots that aren't ready to share yet, but these companion pieces have enough going on to share as they are drying.
This coil pot is almost ready to fire. It's the tallest coil pot I have ever made and I think it will make a great vase for branches when it's ready. I still have to decide on a colour. I'm thinking it will either be grey, or grey and white, or a blend of blue/green/turquoise with clear glaze over top. Anyone want to vote on it? It's not at all what I set out to make, but it's what happened. Clay is like that.
This one is a shorter version of the first coil pot I ever made. I still use it several times a week. Still not what I was aiming for, but getting closer and I kind of like it.
Of the three, this is the closest to what I intended, but still not quite there. What I realized during this process is that I have too many other little projects going on to give my full attention to these basket-style pots at the moment. I will put this series on hold for now and come back to them later when I can give them the attention they require. After some "polishing up" - smoothing out, sponging, sanding, etc I will still fire these just in case they can be glazed in time to add to the Potters' Guild show at the Lawrence House Center for the Arts next month.
What are you working on?
