Hummingbird Picture

My pottery teacher has been on vacation for about a week. She is the only one who loads and unloads the kilns so there is still no new pottery to show you.
I got this hummingbird feeder and snapped a shot of my new little friend.

Lots of Pots

So I have a big pile of pots in my living room. There are a few good ones that I want to keep but the rest I think I am going to have to give away or throw away. A bunch of them are just not even good enough to give to people. The glazes are too runny or the glaze scaled off the side or I think that it is just plain ugly. I really don't want to give someone a pot that looks like crap. Hopefully I will get better and stop making pieces that I think look really bad.

Today in the open studio I worked on 2 large vases and one large bowl. I started off with a little over three pounds of clay for each. They are the biggest things that I have made yet! Whoo Hoo!

This is a cute little pot that I glazed in Randy red and then in Black.
I really like the color combo.

This vase below was glazed in Blue Hare Fur and Spearmint

Whiskey Jug

This little whiskey jug is 4 inches wide and 5 inches from the base to the top of the cork.
It doesn't hold much whiskey but I'm not a big drinker anyway.
I finished a small 7 inch pie plate. It is not glazed yet but the fact that the bottom didn't crack while it was drying is a big deal to me. The last pie plate that I made was a disaster. Smile.
More new stuff below.

Here is a mug that I made for a girl that I used to work with.
I love it. I don't want to give it to her because I'm greedy, but I will.

Here is another chili bowl.

Completed Chili Bowls

Here are my completed chili bowls.
There are close ups below.

I was going to donate them to this fund raiser for my school but I found out that I will not be able to participate in the workshop that was being offered. Also, the guild that I would have to join only meets during the day so I wouldn't be able to do that either. On top of that, the fund raiser is during the day time too. Over all it is just not at good times for me.

This one below is my favorite shape.

This one below is my teachers favorite.
She doesn't really care for super shiny glazes.

This one below is my favorite glaze. Dark Dark green.

This one below is the last one close up.

I made a couple of other pieces that are in my slide show if you want to see them.

Have a great week!
