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.
This one was on the right hand side in that picture last Thursday (When I am writing this, that was only 2 hours ago.)
My squiggly wire experiments are mostly trial and error, but I’m wholly satisfied with how this one turned out. Long time bean-fans may notice I brought back an old favorite glaze combination.
I have some grinding to do.
This is the first run off I’ve had on a piece with a foot like this. It’s a very runny glaze combo (Coyote’s Oxblood and Gunmetal Green, which are both prone to flow alone, but flow more when together.)

It’s really weird, but amaco ancient jasper is like a satin glaze on this new clay body. Still, I’m more than a little satisfied with how this turned out.
Guess who’s got a squiggly wire? I’m trying to experiment with some less polished and perfect looking techniques. Here’s a cool video from ceramic arts daily about this technique. http://ceramicartsdaily.org/pottery-making-techniques/wheel-throwing-techniques/pottery-video-of-the-week-a-new-twist-on-a-faceted-bowl/
I should probably start selling my work again. It’s piling up, but people don’t seem super interested. It’s not gift season and the outdoor art festivals and bazaars haven’t started yet. Winter is dreary.
