i've been keeping busy these last couple weeks, classes are good-i'm really enjoying the interaction with my students. a couple of my students were a little put off when they discovered this isn't a class for painting ceramic giraffes and making ashtrays. i wasn't sure what to expect but i didn't see that coming.
here are pots i've been working on. my clay just came out of the racks on sunday so i've been trying to get through the stoneware quickly. i have a big show coming up in 5 weeks and i have to get the wood kiln fired at least twice so this stuff needs to be done this week so it can dry and get bisqued. i've knocked out most of my making list for the stoneware, all i lack is some casseroles, cereal bowls and a few medium size vases. hopefully i'll get those done tomorrow. when in doubt make bowls, actually i'm out of bowls so this will get me stocked up again.
this is a new yunomi shape i've been tinkering with. i prefer the feet on the left to the ones on the right. i think on this shape its nicer to have the foot flow into the piece. i'm going to make some cereal bowls similar to this tomorrow.
couple platters/bowls and some tall vases. those two on the right have lids floating around somewhere.
here is a detail of how i treat the rims of my vases. i treat the bottoms of most my pots this way and i thought it might be a nice to balance that with the rim. perhaps its an acquired taste but i like it.
