I’ve been playing around with an HDR camera app. Dare to compare?(2 are from the HDR app, and 2 are standard) The colors are a little weird, though. I’d probably do better with a real camera and an actual photo editor. Still, not really bad at all, considering it was free.
My first sale on Etsy. Kaching! Was it one of you guys?
I know it’s just bad lighting, but I like how this bowl glows in the first picture. it brings to mind a choir of angels. The weight and shape is pretty great, so I guess that’s appropriate.
Hello, I am John Mallon, a ceramicist, and I get excited about bowls. If you went back in time 3 years and told me this was how things would be I would have thought you were messing with me.
Let my love for fancy handles be known far and wide. Have I already posted this? Heck if I know. This was actually the first one of those mugs from last month to get glazed, but it’s only just come home.
It’s a fancy modified bowl! The top picture looks like it’s been put through some instagram filter. It’s pretty weird. The technique is similar to the faceted bowls I posted earlier, except I screwed up and did the cutting parallel to the direction I stretched it in. Instead of distorting and widening the facets, it stretches along the lines, and they get stressed and break up, a bit like a sodium silicate pot.
Still a neat effect, especially when filled with black slip.
Spectacular. My new phone can take decent pictures. This ought to do things for my update schedule.
Some of the work I did while demoing the potter’s wheel a week and a half ago. I was on that wheel for about six-and-a-half hours, so there’s a few more pieces not shown here.
Spring art festival at school yesterday. I spent about 6-7 hours doing demonstrations on the potter’s wheel. It was very fun. I think I captured the imaginations of a lot of young minds, and that makes me feel cool. Pictured above is a table of mostly my own work, with a few other students jumbled in. We were in such a hurry we didn’t get much time to scramble the work. Works out for picture taking purposes, though.
In general noone seemed to be interested in mugs yesterday. Cheap or expensive. I had a friend who had a dozen matching mugs all for less than 10 dollars, and he sold maybe 3.
When people would ask where my stuff was, I’d gesture at the table and they’d invariably pick up one of the 5 pieces on the table by someone else.
