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.

Bird Pitcher

It seems that most of the birds that I'm putting on my work are carved into the clay or painted on in slip.  But this pitcher actually looks very birdlike to me.  That wasn't the intention when I made the it, it's just how it came out.  Maybe all of the birds singing outside my studio in the spring morning influenced my work.
The handle of this pitcher looks large, sturdy and heavy. It is large and sturdy for sure but it's hollow.  So you can get a good solid feel in your hand but it's still very light.  I like this idea and will play with it more.  I hope this pitcher finds a good home, I really love it.
