progress


My all time favorite glaze. The cups exactly as I imagined them. They are very thin and uniform. I am happy.


Ditto for the bowl. It measures 8 inches across and 3 1/2 tall. It is really light and delicate.


Less than stellar jugs in my mind. A bit thicker than I want them to be, but the colours are good.


My favorite from the firing. A very loose, very unpracticed line drawing of my laptop. I am going to spend my holiday time practicing line drawing and choosing what odd things I want to place on my pots.


Trimmed today, these are exactly what I am trying to head toward. They have very thin walls and I like the balance of the flared foot. I have learned that wanting exceptionally thin pots means that I will be doing a lot of trimming no matter how thin I throw them to start.

Hello - I just realized that you've linked to my blog and that makes me super happy to find another clay person!

I can see why this is your all time favorite glaze - gorgeous and one of my fave colors.
The laptop tumbler is wonderful too!

OMG! I want to eat that orange mug it's so beautiful.
Is that a handmade glaze or a commercial one?
