My pottery creations on and off the wheel.

Glaze tests – some definite maybes

Leave a comment

Have been wondering about glazing these hand built bottles for a while because I really like the shape I got from combining the hand building of the bottom and the wheel to turn the top of the neck. I thought it might be a shame to bury them out of sight 🙂 this time!


Some definite maybes, like the copper carbonate.

I originally built them as “Olla” where the point is to leave them unglazed, bury them in your garden or pots up to the neck and fill them with water.  It is a really good way of conserving water over summer and ensuring that your plants get fed directly from the roots which they love too. Will definitely be making some more for my summer garden 🙂

There are two things that without, I wouldn't recognise my life. One is my cheeky beagle Baxter who answers to all sorts of endearments starting with "B" except his actual name :-) and my pottery. They both make me happy and hopeful.
