vases


This is what I have been up to the last few days...

I am liking the form on the left....  sure wish I had a wood kiln to fire them in.

some day, sigh.

  1. I like the one on the left too, the neck seems to be the best balance to the bottom of the pot. I hope to some day get a few pieces I make fired in a wood kiln.

  2. These are soooooo elegant. The form and decoration work perfectly together. Wood would be good, but I'm willing to bet that your firing will add to their elegance.

  3. That looks like hours of carving to me. They are all so beautiful, you're right, a wood kiln may be a fun place to fire them but they will also look great with what you've been doing.

  4. Wonderful carving...what glazes do you plan to use, since you're not wood firing?

  5. Thanks to all for the nice feedback!
    If I didn't need new work for the Celebration of Seagrove Potters next month, I would hold off on firing these until I could get them in a wood kiln... since that isn't an option they will most likely be the gloss green glaze. I may use nuka on the insides and rims, instead of shino. I did some bowls in that combo in the last firing and really liked it.
