On production pottery
I require consults after coming away from class last night:

1) For technocowboy: I have been practicing throwing from the hump again, and am getting very close to being able to produce a series of small cups of roughly the same dimensions. Since I've a jar that's already bisqued and waiting for the squad of cups, I'd anticipate I can have something off to you before Yule. This brings me to the glaze question - Is there a color scheme you had in mind? Most of what's available for the stoneware ends up being earthy or dark. Left to my own devices, I might do a reprieve of my first jar, glazing the exterior a gunmetal grey and the interior a deep blue, but any suggestions are welcome.

2) For couplingchaos: I threw a pitcher last night that I think might be yours. There's still work to be done before it goes into bisque, but I'm thinking ahead. Was there an ideal presentation you had in mind, or will you leave it to my tender mercies?

In either case, I'll need to make arrangements to get you folks the goods. We can talk about that more as the time draws near.


I'll gladly entertain other projects that any of you speak up about. I can't promise a quick turn around, but I will do my best. Tankards? Teapots? Just ask.

Current Mood: accomplished accomplished

yay! I leave the presentation up to you--the point was to have something you designed and made.

I'm still working with fairly simple lines. The piece is a single whole, slightly curvy, and hopefully large enough not to shrink too much in the firing. It is currently wanting for a handle, but I'll get on that once it sets up some more.

I may actually do some slip work and underglazing for this. There's a new celedon that got mixed, and it is simply gorgeous against white clay. Maybe celedon/navy? If I get really motivated, I might carve or press some leaves into the flanks.

Maybe you should have a Chicken Monster cup instead?

Was it flippers he had?

Chicken!!

Yup, he has flippers. Porcelin flippers for his chicken cup? He could put b-b-q sauce in it for dipping.

I think I lack the skill to produce such wondrous things.

Aw... thanks man.

Alternatively, the blue can be the main exterior color, and interior could be a lighter blue or a blue/white mixin'.

Yes, it is after 2AM here. No, I have no idea.

Re: Aw... thanks man.

Nah, go with the gunmetal exterior/blue interior. :)

Done. I'll probably do a little something to switch it up a bit, just to give it a little bit of interest to catch the eye. A couple of weeks, maybe?

Dude, you absolutely kick ass. Thank you so much. :)

In the postmodern world, everything becomes a spectacle
