A vase and jar I decorated today. They are both with about 7 pounds of clay. I have been thinking of lining and glazing at the leather hard stage in order to avoid cracks that happen when you glaze bone dry. I got some cracks in the last firing due to that. The face on the right is not one I like because I think it is emotionless, but as my father would say; "somebody'll like it".
Here are some casseroles I made about a week ago, but just realized I wanted to put a picture up of them. I hope you enjoy. The black slip came out with a crackly texture that I like, but I am thinking of mixing something with it in order to soften the texture.
So I got to work a bit this morning and it felt good after the treasures show. I have been making some large one piece jars and jugs lately. I made a face jug today and did not like it very much, but I do plan on making a few more faces on Saturday so hopefully they will get better. I am excited about getting some work done without any show pressures for the next month or so. I am planning on making all of my large pieces first so I am letting some of my clay harden up a bit so I can pull up a few large pieces.
