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.

Condiment Bowl

Here's a new form for me.  Well, it's not completely new, I tried to make one with three bowls a while back but it didn't come out well.  After a few tries I gave up because something else caught my interest. Now just felt right for trying again and I like this style. Since I started making this knob/handle for my mixing bowls I've found a few places where it fits well and this seems to be one of them.

Condiment Bowl
I made a couple using half pound bowls and a couple using 3/4 pound bowls.  I'm not sure if I want to go larger or if I want to try the tripple again.  It's tempting.  These feel really delicate in this greenware stage, I hope they survive the bisque firing.  I'll show you pictures once they are glazed, if the kiln gods smile on me.

  1. looks great. when I first started with pottery I made a three condiment serving dish and used a plastic form. it came out great except something in the kiln landed right in the middle section, darn. I may still have that plastic form somewhere, I'll have to look, I think I got it at a dollar store. These multi or divided type of forms are so very useful on the table or for buffets.

  4. I love condiment dishes. My favorite way to serve a meal is to fill little bowls full of fruits and nuts, bread and crackers, some tapenade, add a soup or salad and then just hang out at the table and graze.....
