First, just a couple of personal photos I will share with you.
This one is of my son, Chris, on his first day of senior year of high school. Two back packs and a computer case. I think I'll get him to weigh it all just to see what the total load is.
And me? It is that time of year when I get the urge to pickle some veggies. It's that German blood, I guess. I have already made green tomatos, mixed peppers and chutney. I will make some pickles this month.
OK on to pots and studio time. I have had more requests and interest in this little gourd than in 90% of what I make. This particular pot was a gift to my friend Ed Henderson . The pot found it's way back to me when he passed. Anyway, it is a cutie and this picture doesn't do it justice. (All photos distort pots and only show you two dimensions.)
So, I made a few- pictured in progress. A couple of these will no doubt show up on ebay.
Here is a group shot of four, four-handled pots. The second and fourth from the left were sold on ebay. The buyer stole the 4th one! But, a happy collector is worth a lot.
I am a bit obsessed with four-handled pots of late. Here is a new design with four fanged and poisonous snakes spitting their venom into a pot. I can't wait to glaze it.
Now, I wonder, what color is snake venom??
I do like to make bowls and made a number to keep on hand for parties and the like. Take something in one to a party and leave it behind for the hosts. Half the fun of being able to make something is giving it away.
I had to make some of these Moby Dick necklaces. I gave away all the first batch!!
See, I told you ebayers there would be a Dragonfly pot coming!
More of those four handled pots and on these I am using my personal stamp and the Roycrofter stamp as decoration.
And here is a very elaborately carved Oak Tree pot. These are fun, fun, fun to glaze. (If it is "successful".)
Another landscape pot.
Are you aware that I have a gallery on the "Vasefinder" site? If you have not yet visited, take a few minutes and surf the site. I sold this Oak Tree tile off the Vasefinder gallery and I think, but I am not positive, that it is the last of those tiles. The mold cracked when in the press. There is a chance that there are a few floating around the studio, but where I do not know. I tend to put things away with the intention of forgetting about them. Pots always look different with a little age on them.
