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.

Yosuke Koizumi

Atlanta Clay hosted a demo with Yosuke Koizumi last night.  They also had a pot luck which helped to bring almost every potter in a 100 mile radius to the store.  It was crowded but fun.  This man is amazing.  The demo is an advertisement for Shimpo wheels and the huge bowl he threw at the end of the demo proved the strength of the product but what was most amazing to me was to see how quickly and how well he can throw beautiful pieces off the hump.

  1. shoot, you could BATHE in that beautiful thing :)

  2. He was at a clay store in California and I missed it, but his bowl was in the back ready to be fired when I was there and it was amazing huge and wonderful. As Gary says large enough to bathe in - at least for a smalll dog.

  3. What a beautiful, generous form! I love the snail/swirl in the bottom and the relaxed wavy line.
