High Fire Pottery with various glazes, some homemade. Porcelain and Stoneware
This is my all time favorite collection I have ever thrown. I have found it to be the perfect variety of shapes and use one of them almost everyday for eating my breakfast cereal out of. The thickness is perfect, and I love how you can feel the groves left by my hands on the outside of the pot from when I threw it. This collection includes a piece that was my first to be fired in a salt kiln and this experience was new and exciting. I love the texture the soda left on my piece during the firing process. All the colors that intermingle in the glaze always interests me and I will never tire of looking at it. It was also my first piece to have perfected my trimming technique of having a very small Japanese style foot on the bottom. **Awarded a Honorable Mention in visual arts by Scholastic Art and Writing
This also includes several handmade glazes I created and mixed myself. I love the blues and greens together and how various glazes still react with each other to create a new texture.
