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.

Studio is Complete

Here are the pictures of the studio, I've not started working in it yet, that will happen as soon as I'm done posting this.  It's clean for now which seemed the best time to take these pictures.

Here's the wedging table with a shelf above for the scale and storage space below.

My wheel and some storage shelves, I can add more shelves if I need them but I'll see how this works for now.  The shelves where a gift from a friend and I really like the way they look.

This kick wheel will be used for trimming mostly.  It's quite the antique being from the '70's...I wonder what that makes me being from the '60's.

The work table with another shelf above it, I imagine I'll be adding more shelves here too.

The kiln room is not complete, that will wait for the temperatures to drop below 90 degrees.  The outside still needs to be painted, I've been working on that a little at a time because I have to wait for days when it's not likely to rain.  That should keep a drought at bay.
