I often find it hard to get back to work after taking a few days off. In between loading the kiln this week I HAD to touch wet clay... it seemed like weeks since I sat at my wheel (yes I am still sitting). The first day I threw the bodies of oval baking dishes and the next day I rolled out the slabs and assembled them. This time I made some large ones, most of them 12" plus in length.
I am also working on some more wall pockets. This was a form I played with awhile back and they have sold really well. There are only two left in the gallery and since they are simple forms to make I figured why not do some more?
In the past I have either glazed these in shino, dusted with wood ash or wood fired/salt glazed. I may experiment with some other glazes this time.
The kiln is at 337 degrees and I am anxious to unload. There are some piggy bank orders in there that I am nervous about. I really don't like to do special orders for that reason! I will get some photos up here on the blog as soon as I can.
Happy Saturday and don't forget to put a bird on it!
