Here is a close-up.
Here are a few squared and fluted bowls. They were made with 2lbs of clay.
And....here's a close-up.
Here's a taller bowl made with 6lbs of clay. I usually never keep track of how much clay I use during each throwing cycle but this time I am. Mostly because I'm trying to get these pots ready for Baltimore wholesale.

We took her advice and before she could blink....it had a new home.
It's a really beautiful piece and Jill took full advantage of the Anderson Ranch soda-kiln to make it. She understood exactly what was going to happen with that flame to make this piece work so well. She gave us a beautiful little talk about how that single kiln became part of the narrative of her work. I won't try to explain it...you'll have to ask Jill.

This is a little squared bowl. I think it was about 3lbs of clay. I like the little cut away foot. I like it better than the footed bowls below...
I made this before the one up above. As I said...I think that I like other cut foot better. I think it looks more stable and solid although, we'll see once all is glazed and done....I"m still playing around with this "new to me" form. I do like how they'll relate to the smaller bowls that I made at the end of the last cycle. Perhaps the small ones need feet as well.
I made 8 of these 5lb bowls today. A mix of taller like these and lower, wider ones. They'll all have cut feet and the incised slip like the first bowl.

These are some vases I'm playing around with. I want to have a couple sizes to play with. I really liked the larger rounder wobbly rim vases and I wanted to see how it works with a more slender form. They are slipped and waxed and ready for some incising.
I'm intrigued by these "cappuccino" cups. I made some of my more typical "taller" mug forms but then sketched these out and I made these two. I am working on the scale and form but I like where they are heading. I'm not sure if they need a saucer...I've never been big on cups and saucers but these might be asking for one.
Here are a few more tall slender wobbly rim vases. These are with the B-Mix which just throws so beautifully. The piles in the background are part of the studio that I haven't gotten organized quite yet.

been cooking for about 3 weeks getting ready.
The house is starting to smell like Thanksgiving as one bird is in the
oven(pictured above) and another being smoked outside.
It's going to be a good meal surrounded by 7 crazy grandchildren
Happy Thanksgiving to all who are celebrating and best wishes to all
of those readers from abroad.
And best of all...my mother just found the turkey-baster so all is
okay. We had our first Thanksgiving related stress-fest about an hour
and a half ago.
