I’ve been seriously obsessed with the birds for about a year and a half. I’ve made about 125 serious pieces. I’m ready to give it a rest and return to making boards and boards of useful pots. I need that satisfaction.
I am planning on firing the wood kiln twice more before the year is out, which gives me the chance to shake the cobwebs off and make those pots fly off the wheel. I”m never going to be a great big pot maker, but I like the form of these below. I just don’t know what a big pot should feel like…how much it should weigh? These are 8 – 10 pounds. The two on the left are vases. I’ll make one more batch of these right away (which probably means next week! Tomorrow is First Friday and I have a couple of things left to finish and Sunday is Ellie’s birthday, blah, blah…).
Speaking of First Friday, come on out and see Trista Chapman’s wonderful and colorful earthenware pots and silk screen prints from the folks at ‘Itty Bitty Press’!
