done with the big guys.

I've finished up all the big pots except for one. I'll get that one finished tomorrow. I'd really like to make more but I can only fit so many in my kiln and big pots don't exactly fly off the shelves, so I'm set for awhile.

Variations of an idea...these are in the 16" range. Not a clue if I'm going to slip and/or glaze these ones.

The tallest on the left is 23". The jug will get a nice tenmoku and I think the tall guy would look nice with amber...maybe? For the past 3 years I've been using predominantly one slip and 2 different glazes every once in awhile. That made choices easier, now I have to make more decisions.

Tomorrow I'm going to start back with some smaller items. I've wanted to make some one-person teapots so I'll do that, and maybe some new/regurgitated bowl shapes.

Man... the profiles on those canisters are really nice! Get one of those students of yours to take some video of your process, I'm dying to see your approach.

Love the lidded forms. Great proportions.

It makes me happy to see these pots.
