More Pots From XXIX

Michael Kline


More pictures of pots that I liked from the kiln today.


I like this platter because it has a successful "white on white" color
and the bird is decent. It's about 14 inches in diameter. There is a
strange line going across the middle of the pot that sort of distracts me, but
I like it.

I like this pot because it's a little new/old technique of dipping
the pot in slip on its side, getting an oval field to paint an image.
It sort of reminds me of a cameo. The inside of the pot was ribbed
out after I had torched the pot, thus crackling the surface of the pot.

This pot has some nice handles and the bird looks chipper.

On Deborah Woods suggestion, I'll post a few pots I didn't like tomorrow.
It's late, time for some sleep.

Unloading of XXIX

a new look with the old

The kiln is unloaded and it looks pretty good. I have the usual disappointments, but I'm trying to keep my chin up. I'm sure there are some nice pots I've yet to "see".

I'm going to try and get some pots "shot" this evening and possibly post some. Let me know what you think, impressions, dislikes, etc. Thanks to Courtney, (and Joe Cole) again for her encouragement to get over my dunting paranoia. It has only been a day and a half since we finished firing. Everything is just dandy.
