Fresh Out of the Kiln

I've been a bit remiss in my posting, because I've been pushing to get some pieces done for the show in September. The one that's taken the most time has been Pumpkin Head, who is pictured below, pre-bisque firing.
Here he is, just out of the kiln this morning. I layered a couple of different glazes on his head, and I really like the slightly mottled result.

Here he is with a couple of new friends. I've been playing with some new glaze colors, so all my pumpkins don't look exactly the same.
I've also thrown a couple of larger bowls. There's the bat and moon pictured below
and this guy is actually made with a slump mold. I wanted his edges a little raggedy, hopefully someone will like that, too. I'll make another with normal edges.
I'll get some better pictures later, after dark.

Alright! Back to writing my podcast!

  6. that little pumpkin headed guy is one of the coolest looking things yet!

  7. Love them! I'm a big fan of ragged edges :)

  8. they look great! I like the mixing of colors, too... I LOVE the raku one that you made (and I have!) that is greyish and brownish--one of the guys that got a crack in firing which adds to his perfectly different and evil appearance!

  9. OOOOOOOOOOOOOOooooooooooo! Look at you branching out and showing us some new artistic flare! I can't wait to see more of your experiments and victories as you branch out in your creations.
