Pots

I have to do a quick post. I'm trying to get my tax information in order today so we can get that out of the way.
My kiln came out pretty good. I got some good information from the last bit of pots I made with the new big sprigs. Here is my favorite cup. You can see the colored clay is a nice muted yellow. I kind of like this! I had to use the Iphone camera this morning because I was in a hurry so the next few shots are alittle dark and blurry. Kind of takes me back to the days I had that really bad old digital camera.
A few tiles. I really like the orange combination with my greens and aqua's.

The new covered pots gave me some idea's that I think I can work with. The way the black stain and the colors sort of go together gives the pot a more rustic look in a way to me. Hard to explain what I see..but I sort of like it!

Well, back to the paper work and onto to see my students. We are working on BIG coil pots. I'm pretty proud of how large some of my students have gotten these! Its amazing what clay can do...

These are great. I like the first cup and the last too jars the best but that's just my personal taste. You've gotten some great glaze colors.

I really like that first covered jar, I get a feeling from it too, with the tan and black and the touch of turquoise, and the sprigs all seem to balance each other out especially with the ones near the foot, the turquoise sprigs look like little berries to me, just lovely.
