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.

Three Dimensional Dragon Mug

Once upon a time I made a dragon mug with parts of the dragon in relief.  You might even remember reading and commenting on the blog post (thanks for your comments).  It seems like it was a long time ago because it was.  We know pottery takes a long time because of the making, drying, firing, cooling, glazing, firing again, and cooling again schedule but this a lot longer in the making than usual.

Thankfully, I feel like it was worth the wait.

This mug has a lot of texture.  It's got places where the clay is raised and where it's carved away.  It's got places of high gloss glaze and places of raw clay and everything in between.  I'm really pleased with it.  I put it in my Esty Store so someone else can enjoy it too.

  1. wow, that came out beautiful, I am glad I am not the only one whose clay pieces wait for such a long time to find their way to the kiln.

    1. Thanks Linda, I do try to fire a lot more frequently, but this summer it was just not happening.

  2. It's a beauty! I just bought it as a belated birthday present for Proge!

    1. Thank you so much. I'm so glad it will have a good home. I really appreciate it.
