  2. From the album: Pottery 2016

    White stoneware, thrown on the wheel as a "chopstick" jar and then altered into a teapot. I added the little hand-shaped flower knob. Fired at ^6 in an electric kiln. Laguna's Dynasty Red and Peach Blush, Duncan Concepts Bright Kiwi as the underglazed leaves and stems. There are some issues with it as a teapot. It's a bit thicker and more bottom heavy than I'd like. It's also smaller than I intended, only holds 16 oz. However, there are a lot of things I did right. The lid fits really nicely. The handle is comfortable for fitting all your fingers in and pouring even with the teapot full. The spout works (a couple of tiny drips but not bad at all) and the strainer works too. I tried it. So I would say this was a very useful learning experience. And I am far from unhappy with my very first teapot!

  3. From the album: Wheel Thrown Work, 2015

    Thrown in B-Mix. I carved the poppies then applied Duncan's Bright Kiwi to the stems and leaves, their Light Pink to some flowers, and a mix of their Bright Pink and Light Saffron to get peach. The yellow is Laguna's Yemen Yellow Engobe, and some of the poppies are done in a thin layer of Dynasty Red so it shows up lightly and doesn't overpower the pastels. Interior and top is glazed in Laguna's Peach Blush and exterior has one of their clear glazes. I really, truly loved how this one came out. It's for once even better than I imagined.

    Closeup of the carved and underglazed detail on my Icelandic Poppies vase. It has a lovely texture to touch.
