    GiselleNo5 got a reaction from oldlady for a gallery image, Eucalyptus Grove Platter   
    This is my very first platter or plate of any kind, although I have made a few pie plates.
     
    I actually intended this to be a pie plate but accidentally "stepped on the gas" just as I was finishing so the walls spun out almost flat. I decided it was a platter instead. I'm very happy with how this turned out.
     
    White stoneware, thrown on the pottery wheel, carved in a design of eucalyptus leaves in the wind. Glazed in Mayco's Stoned Denim at ^6 in an electric kiln. (Actually fired twice because the first time a cookie exploded and got shards everywhere.)

    GiselleNo5 got a reaction from glazenerd for a gallery image, Speckled latte cup or dessert bowl   
    This is one of my very first wheel-thrown pieces. It's made with Speckled Buff from Laguna and slip trailed with white. Even just in the three months since I threw this I can see a huge leap in both my throwing and slip trailing. So grateful to finally see progress!

    This is my best mug to date. The back has carvings, but it was impossible to photograph...well, for ME it was, haha!
    It probably holds 20oz, so it's a good size.
    I wanted to make a new mythology about how flowers grow...

    GiselleNo5 got a reaction from Judith B for a gallery image, Sponge holder 7 (the weird one)   
    This one, I thought I'd try making a toothbrush holder but only got about halfway as high as I wanted, so I decided to do a weird sort of avant garde sponge holder. It looks weird but it will work. My sister is probably going to steal this one, she's been hinting.

    Three wheel thrown pieces made with Speckled Buff clay. The interiors are then painted with white stoneware slip and the outside is carved with grass and flowers.

    GiselleNo5 got a reaction from bluefire for a gallery image, Wiggle bowl and mug with spirals   
    The mug was a mistake. I lifted the clay too quickly while pinching too hard. I ended up with ridges and a slightly uneven rim. My first impulse was to throw it into the recycle bucket but there was something about it that I liked. I trimmed off the unevenness at the rim and threw a ripply bowl to match. The next day I added some intricate slip trailing and I can't tell you how glad I am that I kept them after all. These are two of my favorite things I've ever made.
