21  More ceramics! in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General by katiebread on: May 01, 2007 05:48:26 AM

I keep my crochet hooks in this, because I couldn't figure out what else to do with it! The protrusions have holes behind them, so it can't hold water.  Sometimes I have some hooks going through the protruding loops, but then I need a rubber band around the container to keep them from slipping down, which looks tacky.  I need to come up with a better idea!


Completed interwoven diamond tea-set.  There are actually two different colors inlaid in the design on the teapot, you just can't see them very well.  Also, my glazing skills need some work.  Also also, our class clear glaze tends to look like frosting, but THAT'S OKAY, it still looks nice.  Grin


Ocean bowl!  I like how this one came out.  I might keep it, but I really shouldn't keep everything!  Undecided


I call this vase The Noble Gourd.  This is The Noble Gourd's good side.  There are some bare spots on one of the vines on it's other side.


Like so.  Its fate is yet to be determined.  As I said before, I really shouldn't keep everything!  I don't have places to put it all!

22  Ceramic pieces...didn't quite know where to put these in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General by katiebread on: April 25, 2007 07:56:52 AM
This is my first Craftster post!  Whee!

This is a...um...pen-holder?  Sculpture?  Thing?


The 3x5 index card is for scale.  This one is up for grabs, if anyone wants to swap for it!  It's stoneware, slab construction, with white glaze and cobalt and copper oxides, fired to cone 6 in oxidation.


This is a teapot that can actually function as a teapot, though because of where the spout is it can't hold much liquid.  It is meant to look melted and distorted.  It's stoneware with the same white glaze as the thing above it with copper oxide, coil and slab construction, fired to cone 6 in oxidation.


Another view from the top.  This one is up for grabs, if anyone wants to swap for it!


This teapot is much more of a functional teapot. Smiley  My boyfriend drew the design.  There is also a creamer and sugar bowl to match that have not been fired yet.  It's stoneware, slab construction, with our class clear glaze (yeah, I know...not so clear, is it? Tongue) with blue and grey engobe in the design, fired to cone 6 in oxidation.


I LOVE THIS BOWL!  I can't wait to find the perfect place for it!  The 3x5 index card is for scale.  It's stoneware, with texture kiwi commercial glaze, coil construction, fired to cone 6 in oxidation.


This lantern is my mom's birthday present.  All four components are separate pieces and the bottom is hollow such that extra tea-lights can fit in it.  I really, really hope tea-lights actually fit in this thing, I didn't have any handy when I was making it.  Lolz.  It's stoneware, slab and coil construction with turquoise ash, texture autumn, and scraped-off wood ash glaze, fired to cone 6 in oxidation.


Stacky boxes!  They stack!  The words on them are "tea" in different languages.  They are stoneware, with grey, white, and blue engobe, clear glaze rubbed off in places, slab construction, fired to cone 6 in oxidation.




This piece is called Some Assembly Required.  It's a maze that you are meant to put together.  It's stoneware, slab construction, a bazillion velvets and low-fire commercial clear glaze, fired to cone 05 or so in oxidation.


Hope you like!
