As usual, nothing is yet for sale. But if you have to have something, don't forget about my pots coming to auction on March 5th! This auction is an ebay live auction where you can bid in real time. Even if you don't bid, you can watch the auction as it happens. Click this link: to see all the lots in this auction presented by Belhorn Auction Services.
Again, here is another peek in the kiln at 800 degrees. I am experimenting with glazes out of necessity for a project I am working on. This is a cone 6 green which means it fires the pot up to 2245 degrees. My "usual" temperature is 2350 give or take.
You probably think that I am not being productive since I am not selling. Right??? Wrong, I have been working as much, if not more than ever, but my efforts are going into two long term projects that I simply don't want to show you. But if you are observant...
I have been involved in making molds of late and here is a small vacumn chamber I built. It helps remove air from molding rubber and plaster. I can't remember if I showed you this before or not.
Here is the '05 "Sugmandment Tile." It is meant as a "SUG"gestion, not really a com"MANDMANT" on how to think about this life. This one preaches tolerance and self determination as a road to inner piece. And I do suggest you buy these tiles and put them up in your kid's rooms so they perhaps will ponder them in their formative years. I intend to have ten of them- one a year. And while I am at it, I'll tell you that I am also working on a project that is going to be five years before completion. Five items- one will be offered each year and when the five are put together.... More about that at a later date.
I have finally had some success with my 10x10 porcelain tiles with the ceramic frames and will shortly be "painting" ceramic pictures. Here is an old Rookwood one that caught my eye and gives me ideas.
Are these killer or what? Here are the first candlestick bud vases. 14.5" tall and glazed with a Van Briggle/Teco like matt glaze that breaks blue and green. I hit the glaze purely by accident. Sometimes I get lucky.
If you are deep into A&C, you are going to have to have a pair of these. They will be sold only in pairs and numbered as such. I don't know how many I am going to make, but I'll bet I'll be short on the supply end when I do offer them for sale.
Here is another new glaze that has a beautiful craze. I don't think I want to eliminate the crazing. It is, you should know, with in my power as "the creator" to eliminate or accentuate crazing.
What do you think?
