|Slab-built Tea Pot. 16" tall|
The pot at left is built of slabs with a pulled handle. It stands about 16" tall. I just love this form - it looks sexy from all angles. This one survived the rigors of drying in my busy studio. A similar form lost its handle last year.
|Thrown vase with black slip. 12" tall|
The vase on the right was thrown and coated with black slip. A coating of Sodium Silicate was applied and allowed to dry. Then the pot was expanded to its final form, creating the surface texture you see. A verigated blue glaze was applied with great results.
This is a 16" tall carafe with red iron oxide accents under a Nutmeg semi-matt glaze.
7" tall pot using the same technique as the larger pot.
Waterfall Brown glaze over clear over black slip.
A very nice & light 10" mixing bowl with verigated blue glaze providing nice color breaks.
This slab-built piece is for our daughter's coffee house in San Luis Obispo. Sally Loo asking people not to put stuff on the pot-belly stove.
This is a nice vase about 10" tall. I had good results with Waterfall Brown over Verigated Blue over clear. Some crawling on the rim (not sure why) but it's a good effect.
I had a few more coffee mugs to fire. These will probably go to the coffee house for sale.
