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.

Michèle Hastings Mug

Yesterday was boxing day, it's a holiday the day after Christmas when gifts are exchanged.  We don't always celebrate it in the States but sometimes we do.

I did because the mail carrier delivered this beautiful mug from my friend Michèle Hastings.  This mug is totally my style.  It's the perfect size, comfortable to hold and has some great carbon trapping.  I'm a sucker for carbon trapping.  This mug will be one of those that I reach for when I'm making my morning coffee mug selection.

Today it's back into the studio to make some pots.  I hope all my Northern friends are warm and dry and have had no problems with the snow.

    1. Hi Tracey, yes, it was mug day. It seems like many potters tend to really like brown pottery.

  3. I am glad you like your mug... I chose it thinking that you would be a "shino" appreciator! I just love the mug you sent me, the imagery really speaks to me and the handle is sweet.
