Delightful sale

I am sorry to see the vase on the right leave home...but on the other hand, I'm delighted that it's going to go live with my cousin in Arizona.

Yay family that likes pottery!  Thanks so much, Patricia!  I'm so glad to have you back in my life after forty something (ahem) years.

In my usual sharing of how things are made...the bottom is wheel thrown, then the top part is made of pieces of slab that are pinched and smoothed together.  The glazing is a bit of Stroke and Coat for the color highlights then some nutmeg and clear glazes sponged over everything.  Interior is just clear, which shows the Little Loafers' shade of warm white stoneware.

  1. Love them all, and the two on the top shelf would make splendid bowls for Japanese tea.

    1. I have a great yen (maybe the wrong term here) to make some tea bowls.

    1. Yes, thank you Linda...and I've already seen the place she wants to put it via facebook. I think it will work there, fingers crossed.

    1. Ha ha! Gary, that's why I'm making small work, no more room until the big things are sold.

  5. Dear friends, thanks for commenting, but nobody told me of my typo (now corrected) in which I mispelled hightlights! I don't know whether to thank you or knot.
