Well, I was close to getting this update online within a month from the last. And I was thinking about doing a DAILY blog! Ha!
First, a few pictures of what has been, is, and will be on ebay. This is the second last "Forest/Northern Lights" panel I have. The final one may show up on ebay.
This pot on the left is currently on ebay. It has been in the kiln 5 times and luckily it has survived the process. Things with handles like these don't always survive. These pots are inspired by Walley, Teco and Grueby.
This pot goes on next week and it is a KILLER piece. You have to like lush and drippy glazes for this one. I fired it extra hot to get glaze clarity.
Whoops, one more shot of the current ebay offering. You might wonder why the Buddha? I try to take pictures outdoors on grey days and I always gravitate toward putting the pot in the hands of the Buddha.
This is a drawing of a piece I am working on and has been sitting in my primary work space for nearly a month.
This piece will be about 22" tall and it will illustrate me inside a white hot kiln handing out a finished pot. I'll post more photos as time goes on. This piece will be around for a few months. One thing about ceramics, it is a slow process. You are always waiting for things to dry, heat up and cool down.
As an aside, I bought a few tea bowls from Jay Stommen. I love his stuff.
And I bought a painting by St Louis artist Gustav Goetsch who passed in '69. I have always loved (and desired) his self-portraits.
I made a few pots with a forest theme.
And this multi snake covered pot that has a bunch of frogs inside. (Thanks to the Kirkpatrick brothers at Anna Pottery for the inspiration.)
Watch where you step!
I am working on a neew glaze. It required a long and involved process to make.I like it so far, but I will be working on it for a long while. Again, you will see more on the progress of this glaze. One step in the production was mixing the glaze up and drying it out.
These gourds got the treatment with the new glaze.
They looked good coming out of the kiln, but they are going to be glazed once again. What looked really stunning when I opened this kiln was that Grape Vine pot. Killer colors.
Here is what the new glaze looks like at the moment.
And finally, I had two folks identify this pot for me. One woman, Sharon Nelson, identified it as coming from Cibourne in France near the Spanish border. And Riley Humler of Cincinnati Art Galleries gave me the name of the maker- Etienne Vilotte. The pot is circa 1925. I thank you once again Sharon and Riley.
