I think this will make a nice blueberry basket for the Farmer's Market this summer, don't you. This isn't exactly what I want eventually, but for now with the limitations of my kiln and my space it's about as good as it's gonna get. It's pretty close to looking like a wood fired American shino and I'll take it for now, until Brandon comes and builds that gas kiln on that farm I want :)
This bowl looks like a colander it has so many pinholes, but I like it, again it is getting close to looking like a shino that I want. There are lots more of the same, but I won't bore you with my very poor quality pictures that I shot quickly on the porch this morning. I have got to get a proper set up!
Here's a little pinch pot that I was messing with last week while waiting on the bisque, sort of an elephant. I smooshed ball clay and rutile into wet white slip, bisque fired, used a black oxide wash then fired to ^6. Still lots to work out until I am compeltely satisfied, but it's getting there. I need to fire up the Raku today, wish I was down in Seagrove but I have to set up at Shakori on Wednesday and there is still lots to do. I'm up early to get going, Happy Sunday all!
