A fantastic kiln firing!

Frank has done it again… we unloaded all of the work from this semester at the Academy and WOW!  The glazes just popped and made everything come together.  This is a two-parter, if you look at the composite vases below, and the rest from this firing for me.  I’m a happy, happy potter today.  Any suggestions as to what I should make starting in January?

An oval, footed serving dish.  And its cousin, the square, footed serving dish.  These were both made as a combination of thrown walls which were then manipulated and built onto with hand-building techniques.  Stuff I haven’t done in years, but it all comes back to you.

Here’s a small round vase.  An attempt at a new silhouette for me…

And two tall pieces, from when I started working in the composite style, but taller and a bit more traditional than the crazy, Ohr-influenced handles I’m working on now.  These were too large to finish in time over the summer, so they languished unfinished until now.  But so nice to see them after all this time finished.  The vase first, then the pitcher…
