Two Glazed Pottery

Soon it will be so hot we'll do our outside work before 9 am if we can.  For now I think 11 am is beginning to be pretty hot here.

 Vase, 5-1/2" hi, 4-1/2" diameter.  Three strikes of orange on one side of Mexico glaze on a raku clay body...the orange is from Eggshell, which when thin, leaves a lovely orange.  Mexico has been turning pretty metalic lately.

The Labyrinth from the Cathedral of Notre Dam, in a handy palm size which you can traverse with a pen or finger...4-1/2" diameter.  Glaze is Cinnabar.

A bit of a pumpkin shaped vase, with a thin coat of snowflake glaze, so the crazing is very faint.  The raspberry is just a hint around the rim.  4-1/2" hi x 5.-1/2" diameter.

This beer stein is plenty hefty, and the amber glaze (and liner) turned a bit blue with the raspberry overglaze on the rim.  .5-1/2" hi, 3-1/2" diameter at bottom.  Though I like the balanced look of the handle, the next one won't stick out as far from the body.  I had to have a man do a fist holding for me, to model the size that handles should be for drinking comfortably.  Cheers..

Snowflake glaze on the body, with the top rim and bottom (and liner) of this vase done with Matt bronze green.  There's something interesting that happens when the MBG and snowflake meet...not a blending as much as an opposition.  This is 7" hi and 4" diameter.

Same glaze combination as the last pic, but on a much smaller shape.  4-1/2" hi x 2-1/2" diameter


  1. Barb! You are rocking lately! I'd love to talk to you! Email me at

  2. Many delighted that you checked my blog and wanted to say something...Gary, and Erin, whow I'm so lucky to hear from you!


Looking forward to hearing from you! Since I didn't know the 1000+ people who supposedly looked at my blog the other day, I'm back to moderating comments. If that doesn't help, I don't know why blogger doesn't have a filter that stops this hacking...
