A simple vase with throwing lines left in. The outside glaze is cohen red that turned blue and the inside is temoku over cohen red.
This is a piece that you really have to get your hands on to appreciate. I got this idea after a few failed cups and I love the way the shape and glaze came out. Many people say it looks like some sort of sea creature. Right now it functions as a great lavender holder for beside my bed. This piece started my interest in altering forms and getting a bit more unconventional with my work.
Stoneware with matte white glaze. This was the first piece I was really proud of.
This is one of my first hand built pieces. I really enjoyed the process of rolling out slabs of clay and cutting out interesting shapes. This actually started as a question of what to do with all these oddly shaped leftover slab cut-outs. It ended up turning into one of the pieces that I am most proud of.
This piece represents a few experiments for me. This was the first time I was throwing with porcelain, so I tried to make a very basic shape to make sure I get an understanding of how it reacts differently than stoneware. Secondly, it was a test palette for my idea of texturing. What you see on the bottom is actually a negative impression of the glaze after I affixed drywall tape to the piece, applied glaze, and removed it leaving a grid-like impression. The upper ring was achieved by putting two pieces of masking tape on the piece and painting glaze between it.
