Here is a detail of some of the glazing on the pots that I am currently working on. I have gotten four of these pots this far and have to decide on an appropriate background. I had some of these pots up in Zanesville with dramatic sun rise/moon rise themes, but am interested in a new approach on this batch. Because I do not want to risk the month's worth of work on an unsure glazing technique, I am going to only glaze one of these and fire it up. If it is a failure, it will be back to the "dramatic sun rise/moon rise themes."
These pots will have to wait for the background glaze until I fire up the test pot.
Here is a detail of the pot in the foreground in the pic above. I am confident it will be a beauty. They always are. I have only made three of these in the last two years. Don't ask me why. Next year! I'll crank 'em out. Maybe. I only had one up in Zville and Tim F. bought it by proxy via his friend Dan who was there on opening night.
I have glazed a number of my old snow tiles with the "new" background. I decided I can take a chance with them as I can easily reglaze them since the glaze lies flat in a pool and won't run off.
One of my unique "painting" tiles. I have a few more to glaze yet. One of then is for the Arts & Crafts lovers. It is picture of a field of sumac. This one- should you be unable to decipher what it is in this galzed state- is a lily pond picture.
Here is the sacrifical hollyhock that is getting the new background glaze. I am sure it will be nice even if it does not turn out as imagined. It will fire down to about 12 inches. (Pots shrink 10-12% when they are glaze fired.)
I am also reglazing a couple of earlier pots. Here is a night time peony pot from 1997.
Finally, I have glaze up three of my oak tree tiles with an autumn theme. There are perhaps, 25 glazes on these tile. There are six on the tree's trunk alone. I hope it all doesn't turn to mud. I have made maybe 15 of these tiles in the last 4 or 5 years. These are the first really colorful autumn ones. I have been glazing these tiles randomly although the original idea was the four seasons. I think that I have glazed them in three out of the four seasons so far. Anyone that wants a set (Tim!) has to keep their eyes out.
