Those little vases

Remember my nuevo primitive vases?  (See this blog post for another example)
Here are a couple from the latest batch.

The red is Mayco Stroke and Coat. Which is then waxed when I wax the bottom of the vase.  Dipped once in celadon (studio glaze).  The very top edge is then dipped into plum (studio glaze).

Clay is a recycled mix, primarily speckled brownstone.  All fired cone 5-6.  These today are completely hand crafted without using the extruder for any parts...though I do admit to rolling the pieces of slab through a slab roller!  I make a slab and then tear pieces off of it, and then adhere them to the base, building up of course until the desired height is reached.

  2. Oh I forgot to mention smoothing the insides as I go means I don't score and slip any of the connections, except the bottom row of coil to the base.
