Jan Pots - Glazed

PLEASE NOTE:  I am selling a few 
of my pieces on MY ETSY Site.
Feel free to visit and peruse my wares.  
I am also available by email, if you have questions. 

Queen of the Load
This glaze cycle was a bit of a departure for me. I had purchased 16 pints of Amaco Potters Choice glazes, in various flavors, in the hope that I could get some results that made me smile a bit more broadly than I had in the past. I must admit that some of the pots came out looking better than anything I have produced prior. But I must also admit that many of the pots that came out looking the best, were wearing my shop-mixed glazes. I spent the better part of two days glazing this one load of wear due to the care and precision I wanted to show in the finished results. The "Queen of the Load" was produced using all Amaco PC glazes and it was like Christmas when I got a look at the results.

In a future post I will list the combinations and show the results.  For now, here is a slideshow of my latest kiln load -

January Pots

Every Winter I find myself in the studio working away. I had an earlier cycle in Nov-Dec that almost sold out at an impromptu sale at the Sally Loo's Natural Cafe in San Luis Obispo, owned by my Daughter and Son-in-Law. It was great to sit in the sprinkling rain while folks perused my work in the light of day. The stuff seemed to show well and I thank all who purchased one of my pieces! Anyway, I've spent a few hours in the studio and here are some pics of the latest cycle as it dries before bisque firing this week.
