Bowls and Plates….Bowls and Plates
I know that I’ve been a very, very bad potter/blogger recently. I’m trying to make up for it by posting a bunch this morning as I hang out with Clarita. Maybe that makes me a distracted father though. Oh…the conflict.
Regardless, I’m just trying to catch up on posts that I’ve been meaning to make for a while. I’ve been working solely in porcelain so far this year but I need to make a few things in stoneware this weekend. Today will be spent throwing some more dinner plates in porcelain and probably a few mugs as well. Then, it’s off to the iron-bearing clay later today or tomorrow….I need to load a bisque or I won’t have any room on shelves….or I can clean off that one set of shelves that is holding junk. I think that loading a bisque will be easier.
It seems as though I’ve only been making bowls, cups and plates recently. I usually gravitate to the more vertical forms so it’s been an interesting change of pace. Perhaps it’s a fear of porcelain that has been bringing these forms out.
Below are a few pics.
this is another dinner plate….I wanted to try some honduran pot deco on one. I love it but I think it is meant for a serving platter. Personally, I think it’s a little much to look at every day with food on top. Any thoughts?
