As promised and as forewarned... recent pottery fun...
This one was one of my leftover pieces of bisqueware from Aub*rn - I love making handle-less pitchers. This one is perfect for one dinner's worth of salad dressing or something. Might use it for the harissa in January when Circle Dinner is at my house and I plan to make couscous. I'm not crazy about this red (we call the glaze "burgundy" - hmph) but it's OK.
Another leftover from Aub*rn. Probably my most symmetrical bowl ever. Some glaze ran but little enough that I could grind off the drips without too much trouble.
You can see below a little piece of kiln shelf wash fell into the bowl and fused with the glaze - this happens on occasion. Thank goodness it's a pretty little piece - bowl is still usable and after lots of years throwing and being ready for funky things like that to happen on occasion it's not a big deal.
I wasn't in love with this pitcher thank goodness b/c the glaze ran DREADFULLY. The towel is covering it up. I like the colors but the glaze is too thick in general (partly why it ran altho the blue glaze you see here runs like crazy anyway). It has since been crunched with a hammer and a piece of it went into the latest pot of transplanted catnip (curved shards make really good little guards in the bottom of planters to keep the soil from going thru the hole in the bottom so water can drain better).
Arguably my best pot ever from a technical standpoint. Only drawback was the walls were a little too thick for my tastes. But really consistent, super symmetrical, very well built and perfectly-fitting lid, which itself was really symmetrical and consistent. I think the glaze is one of my best jobs ever, too, but the darker glaze here (applied a little thick but not too much) ran worse than any I've ever seen. Drips were so bad that the base of the pot chipped off when taken out of the kiln (hence the towel). The lid is now a paperweight in the office and the base, which I was going to hammer or just throw away, is holding the aforementioned catnip planter. I just used this glaze combo again on something last night - much thinner - hopefully it will work out.
