Just two covered jars drying in a sunny studio space at District Clay Center.

but where I see “whiskey sipper,” you may see:

ramekin, tea-bag holder, seed-starter, creamer, egg cup, salt cellar, olive pit pit, tooth fairy beaker, earring catcher, aspirin dispenser, espresso cup, guitar pick holder, change collector, key receptacle, totem…

Twelve to eighteen dollars. Some are wood-fire products, and that’s special.

Winter’s coming. You’re going to need nourishment.

I recommend a healthy food and maybe a new hobby. Make sauerkraut, or kimchi, or other fermented stuff. (Very little work on your part, may I say.)

These crocks include small weights inside, for adding to the crushing action that turns cabbage into kraut.

The prices are $45, $55, and $65 according to size and I have more.

One jar with two lids. Why? You want the finished piece to have the best elements in combination. If I made one lid, or one handle for a jar or mug, what are the chances that that one would fit or be proportional? Make an extra (or two, or three). In this case I just finished both lids, bear and bird.

The green pot and lid have Pinnell’s Red Orange 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.

CIMG2322 This is a detail of the woven clay pattern.  I think when I first made a woven pot, I had not seen this trick before.  In fact, several experienced potters, teachers, have had to ask how I did it. I will show, but I will not tell.

The deep blue jar has a nicely fitting lid.

CIMG2323The inside of the jar and the lid are glazed in red.
