New Slipware pots: two

I unloaded the electric kiln Yesterday and had some nice effects
That I was used to gaining in the Gas Kiln.
This two pint jug I particularly liked I felt it just summed up my work and what I like best about slipware, "simple yet elegant"
Someone else must of agreed with me because the first customer of the day Bought it.
This Jug has some of the nice fire flashing you would expect from a Gas or wood firing
but is created by placing other glazed pots as close as I can.

a 13" wide Pancheon
and one with a lip
Ten Pints of Cider
I had set myself the task of making 1oo egg cups today
as you can see I got to 38 and and then thought
"sod it I'll just make one great big one".

Paul, I can't remember if I've commented on your blog or not. Regardless, it's been great to read and see your pieces. Wow... I'm doing slipwork now and it is quite an adventure. Added your blog to my list!
