Throwing off the hump

To test a new glaze and some old glazes on the new clay i needed some test tiles.  Normally i do flat ones with a texture on them but they are a bit, one dimensional and i find it hard to imagine how it will look on a real pot.

So here are some mini, wonky pots thrown off the hump with Rumpot number 2 that i just had to make for myself 🙂

Rumpot Commission

Experimented with shapes on the wheel first, need a bit more practice to get the 3 litre volume though, allowing for shrinkage of the clay, it is a bit bigger than i can do right now but ended up with a cute litle sugar bowl..

I decided to handbuild it instead, a bit more work involved but i like the result.  It even got me all inspired to make myself one, its just what i need !

Must make room for the Angels

I have been loading the kiln for a bisque fire today, all done by 8pm.  What are the standing Angels for The Domain Christmas Craft Market still doing over there!
