Oovered stuck pots!

I'm going to play catch-up on the images I promised several weeks ago. Maybe this weekend I'll re-ensemble my mural so everyone who did not come to the CDC and get a peek at what it looks like.
Here are those new covered pots that I can hold upside down with the lid on! A good friend of mine was here last weekend and remarked on them when we were looking at stuff in my kiln shed. We had a good laugh when I picked the big one up and turned it upside down. Its all in the engineering isn't it? I'll revisit this form again with some design changes. I'm not happy with the form or curve of the lid anyways so I'm sort of glad they didn't come out. The kiln gods in this case I think where watching over me and decided I needed to think about more about how the lid fits on the pot.Back to the drawing board as they say.....
I'm off to Davidson NC today to deliver those little bottles, which did in fact come out quit nicely. This evening I'm going to try and trim everything left in the studio and get it all in the kiln so my studio can be clean for the holidays. I think this will make me feel like I'm a on a real vacation and can just get right back to my "office work" when the kids go back to school. Once vacation is over with I have a dinnerware order to get started on which for me, is always a little exciting and I look forward to these tasks.
Hope everyone has a good Wednesday.

I have a few pots with the same types of covers. I'm not sure what I want to do with them but I'm keeping them for some creative endeavor.

My kiln seems to have the natural selection mode built in, it usually ruins pots that aren't quite good enough! I hope you do post the mural, would love to see it.

I always have another idea for these pots so it was a good thing I can use them for bowling-balls now!
