Kissed By The Flame

Some pots are quiet, they don’t speak of carving or imagery. This one didn’t even speak of glaze colors or designs. Sometimes it’s a good idea to listen to the quiet. That would probably have been a better name for this post, maybe it’s the name of the vase. With nothing but a spearmint liner glaze, this piece was placed in the soda kiln. It’s about 11 inches tall so it was put in the top with a sculpture and a few other tall pieces. The soda and the flame did the decoration.



The vase is still very quiet but I think it came out well. I’m pleased with the painting the soda and flame did.

Rainy Day Equals Wet Pots

I made this pot on Friday expecting I would be able to finish it on Monday. It's a multi-part pot so it has to dry to leather hard before I can attach the neck. You would think that after an entire weekend it would have been ready on Monday, but no, it was almost as wet as when I threw it. Maybe the rain is gone for a day or two.

It's okay, I was able to get some other pots made and even took a nap which I need, I think I'm coming down with a cold. Or maybe it's just too much rain bringing me down.

  1. Too much rain definitely bringing me down! I guess I would never make it in Seattle!

    1. Tracey, I don't think I'd make it in Seattle either, which is tough because Janet really wants to live near Portland, OR. Thankfully the sun has been shining for a few hours and I already feel lighter.

  2. Thought I was the only one with major weather issues & work.

    Couldn't install a landscape yesterday, rain. Can't install today, muck. Maybe tomorrow. Or will it rain again?

    Glad you shared.

    Garden & Be Well, XO Tara

    1. Tara - I'm sure rain is your friend and your enemy. Once you've installed a beautiful landscape you need the rain, but not before. I wish you ample sunshine for the rest of the week.

    1. Thanks Gary. The entire blog, and a few other things have been acting a bit buggy since google accidentally closed my account. Nothing stays broken so I can't report it to them. It's just wonky.

  5. Thanks Linda, Google has been acting so wonky lately (to use Gary's term). I republished the Health Insurance post, maybe it'll work better now.
