For Christmas.

Recommended Posts

4" round ruffled edge small bowls, pressed nto foam with a tennis ball, stamped with a simple design, work as spoon rests . I found crinkled edged  cutters in a set at Sur La Table, I have used them for everything. with the hot wax, it is now not a problem to have not flat or smooth bottom edges.

Coasters, if I can get the darn things to stay flat when they dry (they're hand-built rather than thrown). Also spoon rests (which are thrown) and a couple of sake sets - the sake bottles are too big to be considered space fillers IMO, but the cups are itty bitty.

You can't go wrong with candles or candle holders for Christmas. See my gallery for small rimmed bowls with spirals. They get a squat round candle in them.

How do you use the hot wax? Cut thro' it ?

Great idea!

Lots of ideas here makes me feel I may just have time!

Nice horrible word,  wares, TJR

Ok, TJR's candle holder bowls are AMAZING!   I do really like them!  

 

If you live in a dry climate, you will find need of a Brown Sugar Saver.   I was at a sale last week and sold a bunch of them!  I use a red clay and simply bisque fire it.  Make them with a cookie cutter and impress a pattern in them.

The hot wax reference was about getting the bottoms waxed so as to not have glaze when dipped.   These little dudes ,I just set in and then out of the skillet. very QUICK, therefore cheeeeeper to sell.  Little things must be really efficient for me to do. just set in the wax for a second. the hot waxed bottoms shed glaze so well I never touch them again, no clean up of bottoms at all.

I make handbuilt coasters. After I cut them out, I smack 'em down on the table. Then put on wheel for a quick smoothing of the edge. They stay flat.

I'm siding with , 'tis the season for a mugging (or something like that).  This year, it is all about hand built mugs with custom imprinted first names...figuring that I will either get more proficient at this or it will drive me bonkers (and that's a short trip for me).

I don't care what time of year it is, it's hard to built a general purpose mug.

 

That's what I make as Graduation gifts, for that very reason.  They can be used for coffee, cereal, soup, ice cream, or the college staple Ramen.  There may be another college staple, that they get used for, but I'll happily remain ignorant of that...

I sold a bunch of those last year. As Babs would say, I sold a "buttload". I gave them out to my kids teachers.[Three kids]. Probably gave out 24 of them. They sold at my studio sale for $25.00 each.Porcelain,trimmed foot, on glaze brush work.

Thanks for the complement.

Not in my life time!! cannot even bring myself to type the B phrase, are you losing your Aussie vernacular??  Y'see everyone's buttload is different. A nice amount, or adequate amount is more my phraseology, more thatn was predicted . Can't really think what I'd say at this time of the am.

Am I being set up here? ;)

What is a brown sugar saver, might make a buttload if they sell well.
