So I’ve been wanting to create a cool shelf to display pottery for awhile now. More specifically I need a place to put my growing cup/mug collection. I wanted something that complimented the work and also functions well both at home and in a gallery setting. I enlisted the help of a good friend, Mark, and uber-talented wood-worker. He did a great job and I can’t wait to put them to good use. This is rad also because it can be mounted either vertically or horizontally. Here’s the prototype:
Fall is in the air. Besides the applesauce I make every year it also means it’s wood-fire time again. Woot Woot! Here are some recent pots that will be fired-up soon. I tried spraying glaze on the outside of some of the pots that will be further back in the kiln. I’m really curious about the results. Stay tuned!
There are some of my favorites from the most recent woodfire! Thanks to all who were involved it was a great experience all around! You can see the difference in clay bodies from the left two cups. The top left is a lighter stoneware while the others are a high-fire stoneware with more red iron oxide.
