Filling the Kiln – Day by Day

Tea jars
Candlestick bases
Oval creamer 
Putting a few parts together
4 lb. bases to be capped
While it is fun and manly to get out the torch and make 2-part pots in one sitting, being the gentle soul that I think that I am, I throw them one day and finish them the next, letting them air dry to the perfect condition. Same with the candlesticks. They are actually made in 3-parts.
A few finished, ready for the fire

The jug on the right is my homage to medieval pottery via Doug Fitch!

    Like the series effect. They are all tea jars, candlesticks etc.,yet each is a unique piece. Elegant comes to mind.

    Your tea jars lead me to ask myself, why, with the quantities of tea I drink, has it never occurred to me to make anything remotely passing for a tea container.
