pots.

here are a few shots of the current pots in progress.


9#vase.


teapots, i usually do 4-5 at a time, but i'm out of clay so 2 will have to suffice. the fluted one is a new shape for me, i've done tons of fluting but never on a teapot.


here is the lone spout. i always throw an extra spout or 2 in case something happens to one or one doesn't "fit" right. i can't stand straight spouts, i never understood why potters will make a curvacious form and slap a straight as an arrow spout on it. it just kills the form. so i give it this gentle curve.


i've been making lots of pots that can be stacked rim to rim to better economize the space in my kiln.


i "stole" this pattern from guillermo cuellar. i think it looks almost like a sort of basket weaving.


6-15# bowls.
well, i'm off to the other job for a few hours and then i'll finish slipping and glazing tonight. i'm out of clay so i'll be thinking seriously about that new roof and the 102 degree days.

I love your teapots!! Have you done a demo video yet? If not, it would be great to see you in action.

Great looking pots as always. Really nice teapots. I'll have to have one of yours someday. I'll be going to Charlotte next week to get our Minnesota pots.
Stay cool.

maybe someday i'll get into the video thing but at the moment i have no way to capture video, so i'm stuck with lousy old photos.
