These two matching (more or less…) pourers look like milk and will handle milk or other liquids just fine. I really worked on shaping the spout on the pot. Usually I have attached one.

Fourteen and twenty dollars respectively.

Hat, gloves, credit card reader…

porcelain-cereal

Cereal bowls and milk pitcher? or ice cream bowls and hot fudge pourer? You decide.

These pieces are in porcelain, rather sturdy instead of paper-thin, glazed in a barely-blue celadon. There are actually six bowls in the set.

The blue ash glaze (recipe from Briscoe) looks accidental and random, earthy.

But apart from the sky (often) and water (sometimes), why is there not so much blue in nature? The blue berry, blue bird, and blue butterfly are absolutely attention-getting.

An industrial accident. Just kidding.

Two smaller ewers with handles.  The Pinnell’s red-orange glaze is deliberately thin on the outside — I think it looks stone-like that way — and true red inside.

These pieces in greenware are ready for the bisque kiln.  They are a pouring bowl, a small lidded pitcher, a lidded jar, two ewers and a human hand.

At this stage, all hope for the future of firing, glazing and firing again still prevails.

Miss Pixie’s is a well-established house of treasures on 14th St. NW in Washington, DC.  It’s impossible for me to walk through without seeing wonderful objects and furniture that bring memories or just please the eye or hand.  Even lovelier are the everyday ordinary things in multitudes, giving the satisfaction of plenty.CIMG2325This is a beautiful textured pitcher by the well-known potter Sandi Pierantozzi.  I had to have it.

These are the right size for the proper amount of milk (one cup/225 ml) and sugar or honey to put out at one time.  I like the way the red and blue glazes melt together.
