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.

It's been cold and rather snowy here at Penland. It's supposed to be the first full week of spring, not the first full week of snow. But it's okay, most people here don't have to drive in it and the roads are actually pretty clear for those that do.
It's really quite pretty. People are always stopping to take pictures of something beautiful covered in snow.

  1. Well it is beautiful, but.......I'm curious do the buildings even have heat. I know from experience that Haystack does not!
