Glazing

May 29, 2015

Glazing a few pots today.  The first image shows bisqued pots and the second is with glaze on them.  The white one in the first image has a white slip over my usual brown stoneware clay body.

last of the mug club mugs

March 2012

Finally finished the mugs for Cooper’s restaurant mug club.   They now have them hanging up over the bar.

I made quite a few face mugs because it was fun playing around with expressions, although, several ended up looking mad.

I also enjoyed trying out different textures on the mugs.  Especially on the face mugs.  A rough face with lots of character seemed to be more interesting than a smooth face.

more mugs

Jan, 2012

Cooper’s Restaurant wants 50 more mugs for their mug club.  That will be 100 total.  It’s been a challenge because they want them all unique…very unique.  So I’ve been playing around with designs, textures and glazes.  I’ve even embedded small stones and copper wire in some.  They are all numbered on the bottom.  Here’s a few waiting to be fired.
