Woman Pots

Today is the last wet working day, meaning anything we want to put into a glaze kiln needs to be complete by about 5PM today. Sooner would be better so they can dry.  I'll have some pieces ready for the glaze firing if I can get them dry without them breaking.

These pots are what I've been working on, Jim suggested that I make 3 - 5 so I can build on what I've learned from each piece.  The first one took a lot longer to make than the last.  I learned something from each pot and tried new steps to make them better.  I can tell the progression but I wonder if I will be able to in a few months.  I purposefully made each one different since no too people are exactly alike, even identical twins.  I also tried to make them look like real woman's bodies.  Venus has been done, there is beauty in our bodies even with lumps and sags and scars.  My hope is that people will see that in these.

  1. When I worked at Claymakers, there was a girl there that made pots/vases with the female form out of porcelain and glazed them white fired to ^10. They were always so pretty. I'm sure you will be bringing home so much that will inform your future work :)

    1. Yes Tracey, I've experienced that each time I've come here. I'm wondering what this will bring.
