I had a great kiln firing this weekend – for a change. I usually have a couple of successful pots out of each firing, but all of them turning out well feels like, well, a miracle. One of the things I love about working with clay is that I’m constantly stretching myself creatively, either by learning new techniques or experimenting with different glazes and clays. I plan to list these new pots in my Etsy shop, ClayDreamsPottery, but wanted to flash a sneak peek beforehand.
That dark stripe there on the front isn’t really there, it’s a reflection. The glaze, Amaco seaweed, just comes out super smooth and shiny – perfect except for the occasional pesky persistent reflection.
