I never can seem to make more than two or three of a thing before I get distracted and move on to something else. So, this week I went ahead and got that out of the way and then focused on making bowls and mugs of similar shapes and sizes. Good thing I don't work as a production potter! The jars above are similar to ones that Po Wen Liu did a demo of in his workshop, I finally got around to trying them and I really like them.
I'm starting to like gargoyles, pots for Raku here, and below a try at slip trailing from a demo that Blaine Avery did. I just went ahead and copied the turtle he did until I can figure out the slip trailer, it's not a natural thing for me at this point, but I think I like using it, just need more practice and some idea of what to do with it.
obligatory votives for the holiday sale I have coming up
I have sold all of my baskets, but again, made three, got distracted..........
finished up the week with mugs and bowls. It took me forever to learn to trim a foot ring. I cut through more bowls than I care to think about. I really like my foot rings now, and it took me no time to trim these bowls, practice practice practice!!!!! I have enough pots for a bisque kiln, so I will fire Saturday and then a cone 10 and a Raku for next week.
