In Topic: Qotw: Mirror, Mirror On The Wall?

Yesterday, 08:52 AM

Haven't done any throwing for a while but I did have a mirror up. We have had some minor earthquakes due to the fracking in Oklahoma and it shook my mirror off the wall and cracked it up. I am looking around at garage sales for something inexpensive in case it happens again.  Denice

For the past couple of years all of my work has been pinch or coiled.  I looks like it could be thrown from a distant but when you get close you notice a irregular lump  or a imperfect angle.  I like the feel of the work it has a slightly uneven surface that makes me feel connected to the clay in it's fired form.   Denice

It is also pitchers for me, I have never even come close to making one I like.  I study other pitchers I do like and try to figure out what it is that makes them special.  Love teapots hate pitchers very strange.    Denice

Like you I wear disposable latex gloves when I work with materials or glaze.  I use to by them at Harbor Freight but they don't carry the latex one anymore so I have to order them.  I also wear a paper mask when I do anything that creates dust like mixing glazes,  I buy these flat ones from Harbor freight that come 50 for $5, they are cheap enough I can use them and then toss them.   Denice
