True grit.

I just finished my evening class and thought I'd shoot off a quick post.
I mixed up a small batch of my clay with 10% 30 mesh sand in it, I wanted to see what it was like. I love the texture that's left after trimming and the slips do some awesome stuff over it but it's a hard sell...hard on the hands too.


True Grit.


Some deco'd bowls. 25#ers.


Some pitchers with a copper green that I haven't used in years.


Every room and studio in our art bldg has a regulator and hookup for our larger compressor that hasn't worked in years. I removed mine because it was in the way of my shelves and wouldn't you know it the sculpture professor tried to fix it. Damn, look at all that rusty water that was in the system. I should've taken a shot of the floor too. An excuse to clean I suppose...and cap the pipe.


That's all for now.
Cheers!

Glad that didn't blast all over your greenware!

Lovely sandy bowls, Brandon.

I like the look of that with the extra sand in it. You are right though, that gets rough on the hands!
