  5. Wild Poppies Sponge Holder in Red

    From the album Wheel Thrown Work, 2015

    This one is bright and fun. I made with the same technique as the other poppy vase, but since it was so tiny it was very little trouble. Interior is glazed in Laguna's Dynasty Red.

  6. California Wildflowers Sponge Holder

    From the album Wheel Thrown Work, 2015

    Wheel thrown in Speckled Buff. I then carved wildflowers and applied Duncan Bright Kiwi underglaze to the grass and stems. After bisque firing I glazed the inside in Laguna's Dynasty Red, the flowers in their Blackberry Wine and Peach Blush with streaks of the red. All over is clear. This was the first thing that sold on the first day of my Open Studio show.

  7. I finally got around to trying out my own version of Marks wonderful thrown sponge holders. I used my extruder to create the walls and a slab for the base. I did two slightly different versions. The one on the left in each picture I cut the walls all the way to the base, it seemed kind of floppy and unstable, but might firm up ok once drier. The one on the right in each picture I left about a half inch lip connecting the walls, it seems a bit more stable. Not sure if I am going to need to curve the corners of the walls a bit or if the whole thing is going to warp when fired. I guess I'll see won't I! These are still in the wet stage and have them wrapped up overnight, in the morning I will unwrap and loosely drape and start the drying process. I am not going to decorate or do anything special with these as I don't want to invest too much in what could very well be a flawed design. If they both survive the kiln I will decide which I like the look of better and use that as my pattern from here on. Once that's decided I can have some fun with the decorating and texturing like I like to do.
  8. Mountain range sponge holder

    From the album Work in Progress

    My second wheel thrown sponge holder. Slip trail decoration with a mountain scene and crescent moon. The mountains will be rubbed with iron oxide and the rest will be glazed a lovely layered blue that breaks over the slip trailing.

  9. Sgraffito sponge holder

    From the album Work in Progress

    My first attempt at sgraffito. I think the clay was a little dry because it didn't carve as easily as I would like.
