kiln and clay.

I received a package in the mail yesterday from Bryce Brisco(grad student at Ohio Univ.) with a couple of "thank you" pots in it. I offered a small amount of advice for a kiln he was building based on my old wood kiln. He really took a liking to it and was intrigued with having a small kiln that could be filled and fired easily with one person. I didn't snap a photo of the pots but Bryce sent me a disc of photos from the kiln build. Here is their finished version, that thing is a friggin cadillac compared to mine. It looks awesome, and apparently it fires well too. Glad the kiln works and thanks for the pots!

This is part of a dinnerware set that I'm working on.

This is some incised deco on through white slip on a large lidded jar. The closeup looks a lot better than the overall form.

We're doing some tall pots in my advanced class, this is a coil & throw demo piece I did. I'll trim the lid and add a knob tomorrow.

That's all I've got for now, it's late and time for a cold one.

I'm so envious of the "thank you" pots and the completed kiln. I'm patiently waiting for construction of my kiln. Stop laughing - I am trying to be patient.
