After documenting the glazes, I got to work on some new pots. I made another heavily textured pot using phoenix (the last one was orangestone) and tried some shapes for a soup bowl with a mug handle that someone asked me for. I also made another casserole with a (hopefully) less-domed lid than the last one.
I left the other pots out to dry a bit so it looks like I have a table full of work, but some of it was from the weekend. My shelf is bowing under the weight of all my pots and reclaimed clay buckets and since I am on the top shelf, people below me are understandably nervous.
While I sometimes daydream about a day I can afford to become a member and have a whole set of shelves to fill, having one shelf really makes me think creatively about how to fit everything on it. I always have things hanging off the shelf or teetering on top of containers that make people nervous. I like living on the edge (of the shelf).
I really like this one.
I have to figure out which rim dip it was.
I like the spotting on the rim.
This one went well.
All I did was dip the rim in black
and it dripped pretty uniformly.

I need to work on this shape more.
