And suddenly the trees explode in a variety of pink and white hues! I’m excited to find out what this new season will bring. A new place to live for sure, meeting lots of new people and hopefully (and finally) a studio that I can call my own, or share; that would be even more fun🤞🏻🌸 #springtime
Spring brings new things! This is the result of my teapot demo for my first year pottery students (@hardingacademypottery) this week. I’d never tried an “over the top” handle like this so I thought I’d try it out since one of my second year potters (@linda.kohn) wants to do one. I’m pretty pleased with it over all. Thoughts?? #pottery#teapot#tea#teatime#stoneware
Here’s a couple of cups waiting to be bisqued. They are extremely fragile at this stage, but oh so lovely. ☺️
I’ve read that glazing is the bane of ceramics/pottery. It certainly has been for me. I’ve often thought how wonderful it would be to make the piece and then hand it to someone else to finish. Although, that’s not likely to happen because the glaze will make or break the piece. Hence: the bane.
I love freshly thrown work. I especially love when the piece is at the greenware stage, all trimmed and waiting, still a little damp. These mugs are a past that stage, but still beautiful to me. They are bone dry. One could almost imagine them completely white. Maybe?
