I have a bunch of new pots out of the bisque and am trying to get them glazed tonight so that I can get an early start at Raku in the morning. I am hoping to fire 4 or 5 cycles, lots of new flower pots for the Farmer's Market on Saturday. The bad thing about my glazes is that I brush them all on and the pots all get three coats. Very time consuming, I much prefer the dipping method.
I started making some little round vases for my upcoming workshop at Penland. They were very generic round vases and very boring. So I started stacking them on top of each other and came up with these two. The others didn't work so well and I over worked them until they died a sad death. The one on the left has little rams on it and the one on the right has sprigs all around. I kinda like them, they're silly and they make me smile. I guess I should make some more serious pots for the workshop just so I don't embarrass myself too much. Hopefully some photo worthy pots will be out tomorrow.
