I Finally Got to Make Some Pots...

Today was a good session on the wheel. This morning I made all this stuff and even got the salsa bowls handled after lunch. The kiln is cooling so there will be some new work out tomorrow. I have been thinking today about what it would be like to soda fire some of this slipware. Just a kaolin slip on the outsides , I could still incise and pop some colored glazes on the interiors or even over the outside slip. I think I'm desiring a dirtier surface, with some variety. So we'll see what comes of that idea.

Tomorrow the plates, bowls and yunomi will get footed and most everything will get slipped before the end of the day.
