Here are some pottery projects from my first handbuilt class:



And here are the some from my second class:


























Thanks for looking! If you have questions about a specific piece/technique, I'd be happy to answer them.

Wow!  I can't believe you made those things in your first two classes!  My favorites were the blue tile with the swirls and leaves (or maybe it is a plate, it is hard to tell).  The detail on that is amazing.  I also love the bowl with the leave prints- how did you do that?  The nature-inspired designs are really thoughtful.

Thanks! The blue plate a small dessert plate, though it would make a great tile!

The leaf bowl is just a slab of clay that I "slumped" into a regular dinnerware bowl. Then I pressed some leaves into the clay and fired it (with the leaves still in place). When it was done, I stained the bowl and put a clear food-safe glaze over the top.

Some beautiful pieces there. I love it when time is spent getting a gorgeous pattern on pottery whether it is sprigged, painted or imprinted.
I love the glaze on your blue Vase. The little square plate is gorgeous. How id you get the pattern on it?

The dragonfly box is delightful, as is the leaf plate and I just love the little vases with the coils around them. Must have a go at this myself.

I used a linoleum piece that I carved years ago for a printmaking class in college for the pattern on the little plate. I really love the way the carved out areas of linoleum texture the clay. I used the same technique for the dragon cup and plate in the first picture too - glad to find a use for those old lino plates.

I love the dragonfly box!!!!! What glaze did you use? Did you make the mold for the dragonfly sprig or is it a commercial press-mold?
