Formerly a Pitcher

A few weeks ago I posted pictures of a vase that was supposed to be a pitcher. Or maybe I should have called it a pitcher that wanted to be a vase. The original article can be found here.  Some folks asked to see images of the finished pot so here it is.



I'm not really sure about the glaze. It seems there was some mistake when the glaze was last mixed up and an incorrect ingredient got put into the mix. This means that this is not the look I was expecting but it is a pretty interesting glaze. What do you think?

New Pots

These pots were inspired by ancient pottery that was made before people used tables. Back in those times it was better to have a pot with a round bottom because it would sit on the ground better and was actually less likely to tip over. That makes for a gorgeous curve and shadow at the bottom of the pot.

Soda Fired Pots


Today we use tables a lot and most people will not like a pot that easily rolls off the table so my challenge was to make that shadow and line without showing much foot. I think these came out pretty well.

  2. beautiful, they look like they would rock but not tip over; are the upper pots fired or are they green, they look like bean pots
