Boxes



Here are a few more things to show. These are boxes that I've been making for awhile. I've had a lot of trouble coming up with feet for them and I spent a lot of time pondering this last week so I just left them off. The are kind of tricking to get through the firing because there shape tends to act as a slope for the glaze to just run like hell down. I enjoy how they look when they come out the kiln and people seem to like them as well so I thought I'd add them as possibilities to my "show" work. The vases are the ones I fuse together in the kiln so they form a family or grouping effect. They look great with flowers in them and like I said before, I've only made them one other time and sold out.

Last night I went hog wild on a new form for a flower block. It is a bit over top but fun I think. If they make it through the next 4 steps( drying , decorating, bisquing and glaze application-firing) I think I'll have to charge a $1000 dollars for them. I spent from 7pm to 12 last night just putting them both together. Crazy!!!!

I may have keep these a secret until the show if they come out.
