New Pots & Kiln Opening

I took an order yesterday to make a large old fashioned bread crock
with a wooden lid.
I made this using 15lbs of clay.
The largest amount I have ever used in one go.
This morning I opened the glaze firing with mixed results.
I like this lipped Pancheon.

and this is one of a set of six.

But this was a very poor effort
black slip painted over green slip with sgraffito decoration.

This was a bit better but still very weak in it's final outcome.

Something to work on I guess.

Back to the workshop now, Loads to make today.

you are busy! Pots look great- we are trying to find the balance with some black slip our selves- tricky stuff.

Time to start planning for the show season.

Show Time is fast approaching it's that time of year when you have to think about how you want to present yourself to the world! ...
