Drippy Glazes

One of the great things about moving is that you have to pack and unpack stuff that has been ignored for some time. We tossed a lot of seconds during the move but also packed a box and labeled it "needs grinding". These drippy ash glaze mugs fell into that category. They only needed a little bit of grinding but it just never happened. Until yesterday, that is. 

I still love this glaze combination of shino and ash. I think I am going to explore it some more in 2016. The down side of it is... grinding bottoms and grinding shelves. 

My NH potter friend, Paul Haigh, shared this joke on facebook this week. I thought some readers might appreciate it:

What's the difference between a potter and a large pizza?

A large pizza can feed a family of four.

Have a great day, and an awesome weekend.


  1. Heard it before, still funny because it's still true.

  2. Like Dennis I've heard it before, but a long time ago. Thanks for a funny reminder.
    Good looking mugs!

  3. I love it. Thanks for the laugh.


Don't be shy, talk to me... I won't know your out there if you don't!
