  1. From the album: saggar, horse hair, feathers, foil saggars, Obvara

    these were developed from an idea of using small tiles in a sagger with a pot. The byproduct was intriguing and this is the result for more finished pieces.
  2. I have been busy with firing pieces for several exhibitions since the weather broke. The obvara was pretty successful. I have been experimenting in the saggars using tiles as baffles to help hold combustibles in place. I am including two pieces of framed baffles because I find them so intriguing. the pots range from 8-12" in ht. I am using terra sig on the sagger pieces as well as on the smooth areas of the obvara pieces. I use ball clay TS so that it absorbs the obvara and the fuming in the saggars. I just added the poster for the Invitational show. Marcia

    Oh, man. This mug was such a beauty until I saw the dang spots where the glaze pickled on the inside and didn't fill in the bubble holes...hnngh. I didn't want to refire and risk the dragon's lines bleeding, and I couldn't BEAR to smash such a pretty mug, so I gave her to my fella. Terracotta with white slip, ^03.

    Sgraffito Eastern Dragon Bowl

    From the album: MOAR STUFFS

    This bowl was a process, to say the least. I threw it with whiteware clay, messed with the rim, and covered it completely with black slip. Then, I carved the dragon. I bisqued it, and since carving all those scales took away all of my sanity, I underglazed color onto the bisque, and re-bisqued it. Covered in shiny clear and fired to ^04. Dang thing had little crawl spots, grrr...re-fired to ^03 after adding a bit more glaze to the bald spots. Voíla! Sold it a few years ago for a stupidly low $150... *facepalm* I'dve charged four times that if I was thinking straight. Live and learn!
