I made some pots this evening while waiting on the gas kiln to finish up. I have a couple of new clay bodies that I'm testing out and I mixed up about 300# of each. They're really just modifications of my current body. This one that I used tonight has an addition of fine sand on top of the grog and I must say that I really like the feel. The clay feels sandy...instead of gritty. I don't know how to describe it better than that but I like it.
Here are some yunomi, this clay was really soft and I think influenced the shape a little. These are a little shorter and fatter than I typically make them. I think they look a little more generous and inviting.
I received an order for some plates so I made a small run. This is the year for plates, I have to figure out how to get 2o something plates into the next firing, that'll be a challenge.

Sweet Christmas lights deco! ha!
I was surprised that I didn't see your yunomi in the Akar show, in fact several of my favorite potters were missing and some of my favorite potters that were there presented work that I didn't really care for. There was a lot of good work missing, in my humble opinion...
