Thanks much. The red line is actually raw, unglazed clay. The things I've been doing of late have allowed just a little because I like the effect that it brings.

I'm still a little heavy with my forms, but we working on that.

Oh K, that piece is so wonderfully beautiful. I'm really impressed. I hope you'll post more images. Please?

Thanks much. ^_^

More will be coming just as soon as there are more to be had. Right now, I'm limited by the fact that my collection is, well, limited. I really need to get studio time.

Love the contrast between the two blue shades. Rock on, dude! Thanks for posting this picture.

It's the color combination I've had the most success with, partly because the glazes are some of the more predictable of the ones available to me, partly because they just seem to work well together naturally.

dust often?
eheheh i'm just givn you a hard time.

pretty love the orange stripe i wanna touch it

You know, I thought exactly the same thing. Shortly after the pic was taken, I ran a swiffer around my living room.

Since the stripe is unglazed, it even has a different texture than the rest of the piece. I have to say you're saying so makes me very happy.

I like the unglazed look, its more "earthy"

I have a feeling that all of my pieces are going to end up with that feel. So far, I prefer working with stoneware, and I like making forms that have substance and gravity. I do occasionally get jealous of the colors folks have been getting on the white clay, but I think this is truer to the feel I want.

I'm guessing that the unglazed look that you're referring to is the matte finish of the Gunmetal? Yeah, I like that, too. At some point, I'm probably going to run with minimal exterior finish just to see how it turns out. (Picture the above with the shock of blue at the top, but bare reddish-brown for the rest of the piece.)

Would you mind terribly if I took a couple pics of your pitcher at some point?

Thanks. Now if I could only get surer of myself...

Oh, and I wish I could paint. ^_^

Perhaps you should up and move to Japan to study. Seems you have some talent there, grasshopper.

You know, I can't begin to tell you how much I wish I could. It will be interesting to see if I can ever get my shyte together enough to manage it.

First step is getting sufficiently up to speed so I can consider MassArt.

Oooh I love the glazes on that. Names! I need their names!
komos From: komos Date: February 6th, 2004 05:03 am (UTC) (Link)
The blue is something called Noxema. The grey may or may not be a junk glaze that they've called Gunmetal. Both got a little washed out by the flash.

Very nice work. I agree, more pictures! =D
komos From: komos Date: February 6th, 2004 06:48 am (UTC) (Link)
I thank you sir.

I need to run into BCAE to see what's survived from my last class. You've seen most of my stuff otherwise.

Oh my god, that's beautiful! You say that your work's a little heavy; I'd have to disagree. It's a stunning piece.
komos From: komos Date: February 6th, 2004 05:04 am (UTC) (Link)
I just need to make you a set of cups now. ^_^

I like the piece itself, yes, but what I'm mainly fond of is the picture. Very well composed and stuff...
komos From: komos Date: February 6th, 2004 04:59 am (UTC) (Link)
I kind of wish that I had centered the stand in the frame a little more, and I think the shot ended up overexposed. I couldn't quite figure out how to capture the color without the flash, and the flash seemed to wash everything out.

I'm notoriously picky about things I produce, though, so thank you.

Quite, quite nice.

Very nice. I agree with riverbank: I want to touch it to feel the ridges, or is it paint that just looks like ridges? Either way, I think it's lovely.

Re:

It's not paint. The 'lines' you're seeing are actually remnants of the texture of the clay body showing through the glaze. There's just enough to give the piece a little bit of interest.
