Qotw: Ceramics In Action Pictures Anybody?


Recommended Posts

Good morning my friends. Here in my Italian home the weather is still fine and the temps approx. 19°C. But I hear that in Switzerland it's only 9°C and grey in grey. Sadly I have to drive back to Switzerland coming Saturday...

 

Today I have a new guest. Sydney Gee, who is new in the QOTW forum part and who is very welcome to the club! Her question is the following:

 

"I was wondering, has there been a ceramics in action forum board or qotw? I was thinking it would be cool to have a discussion where users can post photos of their pots in action, serving at weddings, morning mugs of coffee, planters...etc."

 

Well, yes, we all have ceramics in action, don't we?! Come on, brag a bit and show us your works in action.

 

Good idea for a question Sydney. Thank you!

 

Have all a happy week

My first post misunderstood the in action part. here is a Birdbath of ^01 terra cotta fired at the bray during my residency there in 2002.

The very reason I've been reluctant to plumb my bird baths! Seems cruel to lure the birdies down to cat range :/. Nice, Marcia. I love the turquoise and terra cotta combo.

he is a dog, four feet of love.  because i had asked for one, the shelter called him a cocker spaniel.  he clearly is not since he is taller and heavier than any cocker.  his stance says there is a bulldog somewhere in his heritage and his feet are enormous.  should have been called bigfoot.

Beautiful - reflection of the crystals around the rim in the brocade mat!

 

 

That's the art of the Chajin selecting the implements for the ceremony..... I had nothing to do with it (other than on the pot).

 

And yes.... that was a great decision for that particular brocade.

 

best,

Very beautiful ceramics in action! I got verrrry hungry when I saw GEP's pictures. Nerd: what a great glaze in the kitchen! Lee: is this blueberry ash glaze? Very beautiful. Marcia: how many birds were eaten by the cat? ;-) Diesel: I like the design! Oldlady and Bentley, the perfect team: one is producing and the other is using (the bowls). John, like the others already said, the set fits perfectly to your chawan! You must have been proud of yourself when they selected your chawan for the tea ceremony! Celia, I like especially the cut forms!

 

Thank you all for the pictures in action. I hope more will come in. Especially from our co-moderator Sidney (hint hint).

 

Since I am not doing functional it was hard to find ceramics in action in my Italian house. But maybe the fruit bowl will do?

Heres one of one of my  thrown sinks and my tile wrap around-I made the tile tub to ceiling in shower on all three sides  and around a window and it flows into the sink-it stoneware cone 10 from the early 80's. This is our bathroom at home.

Its held up for 35 years now.

Mark:

 

Making sinks is one of the big factors in my decision to buy a wheel. Trying hard to come up with a product line that does not require me to go to shows: do not have the time. I was just offered the Bldg./Zoning Inspector for our city: still have not given my decision, but giving it much thought. I sell my tile through two high end interior decorators, and was planning on selling sinks through two high end kitchen/bath shops. Having been in the carpenter biz all my life, I know most of the top end supply houses and decorating shop owners. I usually bisq 2-3 tons of porcelain liners in the spring, for inventory. Was planning on making a 19 and 21" drop in sink: and keeping 40-50 in bisque stock. It will be awhile before that happens: still have a lot to learn on the wheel.
