Pots (I think...)

I finally got around to counting my pots on Wednesday and was quite startled to discover that I only had thirty-six. I was further disappointed to find out that this is week FIVE of our class and not week four as had I thought. I am going to have to stop spending so much time trimming (and talking).

I don't want to sound too down about the whole thing. This has been a wonderful experience so far and my throwing has improved dramatically. I am going to make a huge effort to get to one hundred before time runs out. I just hope I can get everything glazed before the end of this session.

Some bisqued pots waiting for glaze.

Four of my juicers and a stoppered bottle.

Pot with a new style lid (the hollow one).

Detail of the lid.

Per Peter Lenzo's recommendation, I have purchased some Speedball underglazes and can't wait to try them out. Thanks, Mr. Lenzo.

Joe surprised me with some new ribs from his trip to Highwater. I used the stainless steel ones and they were great. I can't wait to start some plates and use the thick wooden plate rib. Thanks Joe!
