Sorry for this "tardy" update. It has been a month since the last update. I have been making a variety of pots for the new year. First on the list- some gourds. Some of them are vase forms, others are stylized gourds.
These three are destined to be wonderful little forms. These are "starter" gourds. I call them "starters" because they are designed for those of you that do not yet have one of my gourdy forms, but might just have an unknown desire to "start" a gourd collection. (Just tryin' to set the hook.)
Personally, I think that my gourds are some of the most wonderful things I make. Generally, they do have a European art pottery flavor, but at the same time, Robineau made pots similar to these. Of course, she was hanging around with Doat and Rhead! A number of you have gourd collections started. Now, I need you to build upon those collections. I -of course- have a collection of them myself. Wouldn't you get a kick out of a collection like this? Do you have any art pots that BELONG in the kitchen? If your kitchen is "pot-less", consider these little beauties. And on top of their obvoius beauty, they are generally cheap.
Of course big ones like this 12" piece are not cheap.
I have made a number of pots with handles. Generally they are Asian shapes. Exactly what I will do with the surface is undecided. My original intention was to just do glaze tricks on them, but who knows?
I made a number of these handled floriform top pots.
This is a shape that I am very enamored with. I predict these pieces will be spectacular.
A California Poppy pot. Sorry Tim, you won't be the only one with a California Poppy pot. But you will still have the first! (I miss that pot, Tim.)
and again, something new. I have very high hopes for these Hollyhock pots. They will be vividly and luciously glazed. I have three of them at the moment. I might make a few more.
I threw a few big pot forms, but they looked like they needed to be something else. So after a squeeze here and a push there, waalaa...
I made four and they are going to be "adorable" and up for adoption.
And as I always am compelled to do, I made a couple of snake pots with frogs inside. The closest one is in progress.
I predict the snakes will never get the frogs. I will fire them so they are eternally "saved."
I intend to be throwing and making pots for another two weeks and then I start glazing. I have about another 125#s of clay to make with and then I switch over.
