We went fishing over near Monomoy Island off of Chatham. My friend Pete has a boat that he finally got in the water. We didn't catch anything but we were right in a pile of bait fish...unfortunately, the seals that live on Monomoy took care of that so that kept the bigger striped bass away. Still, a bad day of fishing is a full day on a boat out on the water and I can't complain about that. Next week I'm hoping to catch a ride on my friend Tony's boat and we'll head on out about 25 miles and try to catch some Tuna. That is going to be fun...I've never gone out for tuna before.
Back to pots....
Here are some platters and bowls that I decorated for either a reduction or a salt/soda wood kiln. Depending on my timing they'll either go in my reduction kiln here or wait until fall when my friend Michael McCarthy is planning on building his new woodkiln. Perhaps they'll make it in his inaugural firing.
This one is about a 6 pound platter:
I'm hoping that this decoration works well under my reduction glazes. If it does I may have finally figured out how to make my work and not have to figure out ahead of time which kiln it's for...except of course, the earthenware.
