More from my last firing

3.5" round, manganese wash applied too heavily

2" tall square, should have stayed with 2 coats of glaze the 3rd caused the some running onto the shelf

3" square, chattered with oxide wash

5" round thrown rice pot

3" tall octagon

4" tall round RIO wash

1.5" tall kiln accident, over fired the clay causing the gasses to escape too rapidly and pitting the glaze. Love the look!

2" round porcelain

These are amazing planters for succulents! Many people are not going understand what they are looking at. Most viewers haven't been exposed to the aesthetics behind the choice of forms and surfaces used to display succulents. Personally, I'm a huge fan of freeform hand building specifically for these plants. It really takes a brave potter to step outside the preconcieved box of values to create pieces that will show case a specimens properly. Your work makes amazing display. Top notch!
