I had a few things come out of the kiln this week
A little box
Thrown as one piece and turned down to fit snugly.
I should have taken more time with the waxing before glaze as
it has to be really thick to get the right colour and that has meant the
lid doesn't fit as well as I would like.
This time I fired them separately to improve the chance of a two piece work.
Hyacinth blue drops over thick Tenmoku.
Stoneware fired to 1280 C
And this one was just a bit of fun.
I couldn't resist making a spider that wears shoes.
I am not a shoe fiend myself but I do realise it is a compulsion for many folks.
I think it is because the shoe always fits,
which pleases people with fluctuating measurements.
No offence intended.
I am thinking of adding a mop of black hair....just on top
This one was a demo pot made when I had some new young students.
I was talking about putting some feet on the pot.
Which resulted in more shoes!
I am going to link this post to http://mudcolony.blogspot.com.au/
