A few recently-picked-up pieces from the pottery studio:
1. A bowl, blue with the rim dipped in eggshell
2. My garden mug. Recently, I made a garden mug for a friend who frequently commented on my probably-overly-enthusiastic Facebook posts about my love for pottery. I thought he should definitely get a mug, both for that and for being awesome. I liked his mug so much that, while I was waiting for its first fire, I started a second one for myself. The tan color is the color of the clay and the veggies and sunflowers are painted on in slip and outlined with a carving tool before the first fire. Then the whole thing is dipped in clear glaze and fired the second time.
3. A white flower cup. This is am similar process to my garden mug, only I dip the whole piece in white before painting.
4. A white cup with a story. This cup is for a friend who is a singer-songwriter and all the images on the cup come from the lyrics to a song from one of her CDs.
