A couple more barnacle pots all fired and ready to go to a local exhibition in November. This makes 3 finished of the ridiculous goal that I've set for myself. Expectations are meant to be revised as the deadline nears, right?
And here's 3 more, glazed and ready to fire tomorrow night. They are resting nicely in the kiln right now. Those pinkish rims will be white by Wednesday morning and the gray green centers will be blue just like the pots above. Actually the larger platter is an unknown as it's layered with an untested combination. Sometimes it gets confusing when I glaze because what I see on the piece going in often has no resemblence at all to what comes out. But it is always a surprise when I open a kiln, hopefully a good one, sometimes not, but always a departure point for a new idea. This is what keeps me drawn to working in clay. There's something new each time I see the fired results. Usually exciting, occasionally disappointing, but never boring.
