I am still making pots. I should have stopped a month ago. But I still have a few ideas that must be realized this time around, so I continue to make.
I am through with the Snake Charmer Pots. I made five and they all have lids. I have a grand idea for glazing. I, of course, must test that idea first!
I have been experimenting with a few new ways to mark my pots. You will see a few of things like this in '07.
I am making a lot of very Japanezy things.
I have a recommendation for you. During spring break, my wife, son (Chris pictured), and I took a train trip from St. Louis-Chicago-Portland/Vancover on the "Empire Builder." It is a wonderful way to travel and first-class is not as expensive as flying or driving.
This tree in the Portland Japanese garden will show up on some pots.
I have perhaps five of these to glaze.
I made two Saturn plates. One succumbed to a cat walking on it and the other picked up a freak crack from foot placement. More to come.
It is painful to have to toss them away. There was a deceptive amount of work on this piece.
These sleet pots will be stars this year. At least they are in my imagination.
Made a couple of beer mugs for poker night.
Here is how that tree in the Japanese garden is going to be realized.
A kiln load waiting to be bisqued.
Never enough table space!
A few recent aquisitions. This is a pot by Linda Christansen who works in Minnesota.
Warren MacKenzie and the big piece is Randy Johnston.
Some tea bowls in the Japanese Shigeraki style by Jay Strommen outside of Chicago.
And a wonderful little painting that shows one of Missouri's rivers where we canoe every year. This painting really captures the area.
