Another evening at the studio

It's Friday and another evening at the pottery studio. A couple of bisque ware (after first fire) came out but I didn't glaze them yet. I just spent the time to make new pots: a mug and 2 bowls.

First set of pots for 2007

YEAH! My first set of pots came out the kiln. Special thanks to Doug and Allison at the studio.

There's my second sake set. I like the colour a lot, it's Harvest Gold. It has a real Japanese look to it.

Last year, I've tried many different glaze combinations. Most of them are 3 colors: 2 glazes with overlap in the middle. I need to figure some new combinations for this year's collections. This is the first one I've tried...instead of 3 colors, this one only has two colours. The whole pot was glazed with Mysterious Blue then dipped a corner with Kermit Green.

No new pot to show

My glazed pots from last week didn't get fired! So, no new pots to show. But I was managed to glaze a couple more pots and made a couple more. Hopefully, I will have something to show next week.

First day back in the studio for 2007!

After a month not making any pots, I am finally back to it. I managed to make 3 new bowls which surprised me quite a bit. Since, I usually take a few hours to get rid of the rust (just like playing golf :)) before any decent pots. I've also glazed some pots as well. One of them was the sake container in Harvest Gold. I can't wait to see that one ready. There is also the soap dispenser for my mom.

It's Ruth's b-day. Happy Birthday, Ruth! Thanks for the delicious cakes!
