I have been making mostly outdoor items in pottery lately.  Here are some of my newest.  They are both handbuilt out of light brown stoneware clay.  This is my favorite:

and the leaf-thatched roof:

and a little closer, to see the leaf/glaze detail:

The base is dipped in clear and the roof in red-to-brown.

Another one:

I rolled the slab out on a grid like mat before handbuilding.  And the top:

I used underglaze to paint some of the blocks, at first it was just going to be dots, but when I looked closer I thought of Tetris.  If you look close you can see the different tetris shapes I glazed on.  Why?  because I'm a nerd.  Then I dipped in a clear glaze so it would be nice and shiny.

Thanks for looking!
