I love these dragonfly cups by Claudine Cobra Willoughby of Cobra Pottery, LLC. You can see more of her work at http://www.cobrapottery.com.
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.
This covered jar by Jim Shea was fired to cone 10 in oxidation. Jim’s work is inspired by his admiration for the simplicity and craftsmanship of the Shakers. He strives for the strong, calm spirit of the Shakers in his pottery. You can see more of his work at http://www.sheapottery.com.
I had a lot of fun working on this little family of girls
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.
Wanted to share this wood sculpture by my young friend Jean-Frederic Batassé of Lomé Togo in West Africa. You can learn more about Jean-Frederic, aka Alice Tooner, at his website Art d’Alice
