Nearly finished



Sixty four here. Thirty more to glaze today. It seems to be a slow process. But here at LibertyTown there are several potters making bowls for Empty Bowl, so literally hundreds are being processed through in our hard working kilns. (We are expecting a new one any day now!)

These bowls are from normal to experimental for me. The blue and green is my basic glaze combination (more discussion on that another day). It reminds me of the sky and earth. The slipped and painted are a cone 6 twist on Ron Philbeck and traditional earthenware slipware. They are still pretty rough. I need to work on refining these, though I will keep them simple and loose. The tundra green and setter red is a big seller from my studio but are both pottery school glazes. I try not to use them too much for selling since the students use those colors too.

Im sorry I dont have any close ups. I am a total loss on picture taking. I have a subtle tremor that really makes taking clear pictures impossible. I HAVE to get myself a tripod. Hopefully that will rectify the problem....

I will glaze the last of the bowls today. I had a fall in the ice a couple of weeks ago and my back finally gave in on Friday. So after lots of ice and a visit to my Trusty Chiropracter Dr Chris yesterday, I seem to be back in business. (No pun intended) But, I'll still take it easy for a couple more days.

Like Layla maybe?

I like the photos, Anna! Way to go on Empty Bowls. I can't wait to see all of them out on the 31st. It's already fun to see our potters' bowls as they come out of the kilns at Ltown.
