A Couple of Pots Just Out of the Kiln

Post by Watto »

After playing around with glazes as shown in my last "pot" post, yesterday was kiln opening and I am reasonably pleased with the results considering I still have my L plates.
Of course you wont be seeing the ones I'm not happy with. Always your thoughts and opinions are appreciated.

I’m rather partial to number three too. Remember to show it off again once you’ve potted the native into it.

Good work, Watto!
I like the pot you’re earmarking for the native.
Referencing the last pot with the ash glaze (big tick), if you spray the glaze you’ll get a better coverage. One more thing, don’t be mean with the clay😏.
Cheers Pat

Good work Watto, I'm impressed! I've only ever made one pot, and that was with a bonus piece of clay Marie Hewartson handed out to everyone after she gave a talk. Just trying to make a small object that is functional stretched my abilities!

Wonderful stuff!!

I love the curve into feet - challenging the dogma of straight lines.
The Ash glaze over a grogy body balancing and justifying the ego's need to find nature in harmony.
Control without pride. (if that's possible?)

The Photons did it!

Nice work Watto ,I like the look of the last one, interesting design, nice texture. How about flipping one over so we can see your chop. Cheers John.

Thanks for the kind comments. It makes me think I am moving in the right direction.
Just for you John, here are a couple of photos of the other side.
