The piece on the left works best for me. Grey / taupe is a tough color to incorporate into a pottery piece; even harder to blend to other colors. Interesting that you used the deepest color to break the color symmetry. Even more interesting, you did not use a straight line to do it!. 

I visualize this piece as sweeping up from the bottom. So I wonder how the handles would look with the arch sweeping upward, instead of down? (convex instead of concave)

Congrats on the sale. Excellent piece to break the retail ice with. I like the height on that piece as well. Just figured out what I like it. Even though earthy tones were used: the shape is more modern; more proportionate. I know about trees; been hacking my way through the stoneware formulation jungle.

Thank You Nerd, It is the shape that folks are saying they like the best, next is the color.


Personally, I'm going for the one in the middle, all that earthy goodness. It reminds me of standing on a tall mountain and looking out at other mountain ranges.

I can understand that preference. It has that 1920-30"'s crock look to it. Give some consideration to some modern colors for the one on the left. Strictly as a point of selling, profits; the one on the left would also draw the modern crowd if done in monochromatic schemes.

Nerd, thanks for the tip. Never thought of monochromatic. I have been so enamored with my new found glazes and spraying have been kind of going hog wild with multi colors.

I am proud of the glaze used on the left one. It is one I formulated on my own - no one else has this glaze. Found a chemical analysis on Digital fire. I formulated it using Boraq for the boron and used Wollastonite for the calcium, also Frit 3195. It went thru several versions to get here. This glaze is liked by a lot of people. It goes real well with MC6 Waterfall Brown.


Thanks again.

Thank You Joseph. You know how it is, head down plugging away not really seeing the light of day. Then, all of a sudden and out of nowhere, the sun starts shining brightly illuminating the path.


You said something to me a while back that has stuck with me. You said not to stop throwing and developing thrown work while testing glazes. It is easy to get caught up in the testing and tweaking. When you said it, that is exactly what I was doing - neglecting the throwing for the testing.


Thank You
