Anyway, here are a few pictures of some pieces I took out of the gas kiln the other day. I'm getting a little better, but I'm still frustrated with my amateurish glazing.
|This didn't turn out as pretty as I expected. |
It was supposed to have some iron-red coloring,
but it turned out the color of baby poop.
Maybe it'll be good for some kind of
church service or something. I dunno.
|This is a chalice I made for my friends at Lotus House, |
an intentional community in St. Louis. It shrunk considerably in the
kiln and so it is very small, but it'll still get the job done, I think.
|A small container for sacramental elements. |
Water, wine, anointing oil. Whatevah.
|The "cork" is actually ceramic, as well.|
|This mug turned out really well. When I finished it, |
I came home and jokingly announced to Alyssa:
"I quit. I have made the perfect mug."
