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.

Condiment Dish

One of the best times to use your handcrafted pottery, besides everyday, is when you have guests. Yes, you could put out a can of nuts, a bag of chips and a jar of salsa and call it a party. However, your guests may feel a little more special if you serve them any of these items in a nice vessel.

The design of this condiment dish is based on the relish tray my grandmother always used to serve pickles. I love pickles so I loved the dish. This piece doesn’t feel as grandmotherly as hers did but it still serves the same purpose, you can serve two items side by side and only use one dish.

I like it for cheese dip on one side and guacamole on the other. Or two flavors of dip for veggies or chips. It would also be terrific for nuts, say mixed nuts on one side and rosemary cashews on the other. Oh, the combinations are limited only by the imagination. What would you serve in this dish?

  1. any kind of dish that holds more than one item is a winner to me, especially since it saves steps for the cook.

    1. Thanks Michèle, I do tend to sell all of them that I make, and they don’t stay in stock very long.
