pitcher 14. inspired by this. I made a chrysanthemum-type stamp years and years ago and pressed it into the not-quite leather hard clay, then brushed low fire blue glaze over it before I bisque fired. I don't remember if I tried to wipe it off or not (but I think I may have). I coated it in clear gloss before firing to ^6. My favorite things about it are my finger marks on the inside and the almost ikat streakiness of the blue on the handle.
#15 is an upsized version of a creamer that I made before Christmas and my friend Brian has. Sadly, when I was moving it to bisque fire, I knocked the handle off, and some chunks of the rim. Because it was still green (unfired), I got the pieces wet and stuck them back together. So it has a bit of a "make do and mend" quality to it. I have to say that while I was disappointed that I broke this piece, the mending is my favorite part of it.
#s 17 and 18 are ready to glaze and I threw #19 yesterday. time flies!
Thanks for reading, friends.
