SURPRISE!

Fall session of pottery has started again tonight. Man, 3 weeks not doing pottery is quite something. I missed my pots so much....

Anyways, I went to studio today and started to look for my pots. The two glazed bowls were sitting on the shelf, they are the big bowls that I made last session. One of them has a big crack at the bottom and I thought it won't work now. However, when I saw it today, the glaze has covered the crack up quite nicely and I think the bowl is still usable. Then I went to look for the bisque ones. I knew I should have 2 mugs and 2 bowls, but it turned out I had another 2 bowls that I totally forgot about. What a SURPRISE!

I was quite busy tonight, I glazed all those bisque wares and made 3 things. One of the thing I made tonight was a casserole. I haven't made one for a long time, let's see how this one turns out.

I've also found out this year's Winter Pottery & Art show will be November 22 - 23. I am putting my registration form through, let's see if I will get in lah!

Pots from the summer session

The summer pottery session went by so fast. There weren't too many pieces from the session. One thing I had tried this session was making bigger pots, many thanx to Julie for her encouragement. Julie had asked me to make her a big bowl for fruits, well, I hadn't really make any big bowl until then. So, here it is, Julie's fruit bowl.

Used about 5 pounds of clay, probably trimmed down to 2.5 - 3 pounds and glazed with Kermit Green and Mysterious Blue.


Other than the fruit bowl, I'd also made some small bowls. Here is one of them (Kermit Green and Dark Clear Green):


Besides pots that were thrown off the wheel, I also made a couple of hand-built plates. Of course Richard did the craving. The bamboos look very nice on these plates. One interesting thing about these plates are that they were glazed with the same glaze (Mysterious Blue) on the same night, but somehow one of them came out more green.

Studio doesn't start again until September 26, so until then....
