Here are a few more pots that I made
Love this splatter one – it’s got deliberate notches that I cut for chopsticks (as it was a present for my sister) but sadly the bowl came out much smaller than I thought, so not quite as useful for noodles!
This is another one I quite like:
This bowl was lovely and symmetrical, and the glaze came out beautifully (I usually get either a wobbly bowl and nice glaze, or great bowl and crap glaze) – sadly it melted onto the kiln shelf and so the bottom is rubbish.
New term at last! Some new pots go into the damp cupboard…
And a week later they are ready for turning (which is a fancy way to say tidying up the bottoms!)
Trying out my new clay stamps – week 1 = footprint stamps
Also working on my round bottoms!
Phase 2 – black and green slip…
And here it is!
Glazed and ready to go into the kiln for a second firing (this one is cheating slightly, as I didn’t make it – my instructor made it for me to show me the technique and I decided to glaze it to test out some colours.
Of course, it came out looking stunning, but I can’t decide what to do with it – I feel bad giving it to anyone as it’s not really made my me!
I LOVE this little round one!
