As promised, here is a picture of the cherry blossom plate as it looked as it was being reglazed. This is close to when it was finished.
And here is what I like to see when I open the kiln.
Here is a pic of an older A&C type alium pot that I dragged out to show a visitor that stopped by as he was heading west. This one I am keeping for myself. I had not seen it for a couple of years.
My son took this pic of me working real close.
I had huge hopes on this batch of tiles. As usual, I was trying something new, "radical" you could say, and as is often the case, I got burned. I was actaully reversing the glaze process in a sense. I had two concerns about the process and both of them became realized and doomed the tiles. The process has huge potential and the two concerns can be overcome. If I sort out the process, I will be making tiles like no none has ever seen before. Mark my words. (But give me a year to sort out the process.)
Here is a close up of one of the tiles before it was fired. They turned out OK to some degree, but I don't consider them "saleable."
Just for the heck of it, here is a pic of the only tea pot I have ever made. It is dust covered. I dug it out of storage so-to-speak.
I have been spending the last week on some poplar pots. These are going to be spectacular as I am pulling out all the stops and using every trick I know to embue them with beauty.
Here is how the first poplar pot turned out. (I would love to hear what Ed Diers would say about pots like these.) It is the first and it is not for sale because I need it around to lead the way for those to follow. It is a killer piece and the next generation will be even better. Patience.
Here is something new. I have always been possessed with images of trees in art. This is just a little test piece. Imagine it with some nice A&C glazes. Ya!
And the backyard project continues...
