some of the new pots

kiln bug and Segersaurus!
soap dishes
shaving bowl/soap dish
managed to get the serpent green this time!
snails too!!
yarn bowl- ok for a small ball, need to make bigger ones
Mouse cheese bell and butter dish. Unfortunately the inside glaze on the dish isn't perfect, I'm not sure what happened to it. Still serviceable, not saleable.
covered soap dish...
in three parts! First version- the drainer disc needs to be a little wider.
Not bad considering, and I have increased the mug stock with this firing. Also The pint belly mug was exactly that! So I have the throwing weight right for that.....I think I wrote that down somewhere....!!

I love the snail handles especially and the soap dishes too. When I've sold some of my stuff I shall be calling in to your shop. The colours fit my preference for earth tones too.

I haven't got a shop myself,but my pots are mainly at The Court Cupboard near Abergavenny. Also Llantarnam Grange in Cwmbran.
Have a look sat my website and Etsy too!

Nice bunch of pots there. Maybe you could touch up the inside glaze and refire ?

gz said...

lady, I haven't had much luck with refiring, possibly as I'm near the top limit of this clay, and the combined heatwork is too much for it

Love the soap dishes. You know those would be make lovely flower arrangers too, without the cover of course!
