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.

Finished Condiment Bowls

You may remember the condiment bowls I made and posted a few days ago.  The first set came out of the kiln and I'm pretty happy with them.  The glaze is a very pale yellow that washed out in the flash but looks inviting on the piece.  I did a little coloring on the rim, I wanted it to be subtle so the pot doesn't out shine the food.

Condiment Bowls
When I was growing up we'd often go to my Grandmother's house for Sunday dinner.  She always had a dish like this full of pickles and olives which I love to this day.  When we entertain we usually have a condiment bowl filled with nuts or various dips like guacamole and hummus.  They are something that should be in everyone's cupboard.  What would you serve in one?

    1. Thanks Linda, that sounds like a great idea, or salsa on one side and guacamole on the other.

  2. These are looking good. That nice fat nobby handle givesit great style. I think most dips, nut, olives would look terrific in them. A pale yellow really sets off most food!

    1. Thanks Suzie, that's what I was hoping for, I didn't want the piece to make the food look unappetizing.

  3. Success! I would serve my new favorite combo - hummus in one, olive tapenade in the other.
