Something Old

I made this a few years ago. Haven’t worked with colored clay in a while, but I’m thinking it might be fun to get back into it.

A Couple of New Pieces by Me

These were both coil-built of very groggy clay. I made the walls of the teapot thin so it would be nice to pour, but didn’t realize the groggy clay would be so porous when fired to vitrification. Even though the interior is glazed, the thing leaks like a sieve. The tall footed bowl works just fine.
