recent pots

these are some pics of recent firings. I've been introducing some different clay bodies and glazes for cone 6 into my work. one clay body is a porcelain from Matt and Dave's clays called "porcelain for the people" a very white body that goes as high as cone 11-12. I used it at cone 6 for some bowls and a platter that just came out of yesterday's firing. this platter has a mottled blue on it,that provided a nice finish on this particular clay. Other recent work involves a luster green with some iron sprayed around the edges. It is a very nice look, and the iron turns brown when sprayed on the rim. I hope to be posting more often as new work is unloaded from kilns, especially pieces that are the best from the firings.
