I love these bowls!
This is a vase that looks very much like a piece of tree. I quite like that. I made it by pushing a log into a piece of clay and whacking it around on the floor (just added a bottom at the end). Poured three or four different glazes over it.
A dinosaur vase. Iron oxide wash and crackle glaze.
Fabulous crawling effect. Sold at the Waikato Potters annual exhibition in September 2010.
My first try of our ‘Elisabeth st clay’. No idea what clay it actually is; it was given to us. Some stoneware with fine grog and excellent ability to keep well defined edges. I also like the glaze. One pot with some soda was in the kiln and I think that one changed the behavior of the other glazes.
I like the glaze test above – it looks like bird’s eggs.
The shino glaze was okay but not what I expected. It was supposed to have a more pronounced difference between the white and the red with a crawling effect on the white.
This one is glazed with Malcolm Davies Shino (carbon-trap shino): the glaze was prepared some months ago and the soda had flaked out. I used it anyway and the result was quite stunning. The unglazed side turned smooth and shiny like in a soda wood firing.
