I've been making a whole bunch of pottery lately and I wanted to share some of it with you all. Smiley I would love to know which one is your favorite.


Yarn bowls! I love the way the glaze on the turquoise one came out. It has a slight ombre effect from top to bottom.


Feather mugs. I've been doing a lot of sgraffito, which is a fancy way of saying scratching. Wink It's where you paint a colored material (underglaze in this case) on top of the clay and then scratch through it to reveal the color of the clay underneath.


Doily bowls. I made these using paper doilies as stencils. I love the contrast between this particular blue and the white clay.


Winter tree mugs. I'm originally from Southern California and we didn't have winters. Not really. So when I moved to Tennessee, I was really struck by the way the bare tree branches look against the bright blue sky. So I made these mugs. Smiley They started out much bigger but I was trying out porcelain and they shrank way more than I was expecting!


Goldfish pots. These are sort of multi-use little pots. They're about the size of a cereal bowl. More sgraffito. Cheesy

WOW they are ALL so beautiful! How long have you been making pottery??

I love the turquoise yarn bowl. I definitely could use one of those ! I also love your sgraffito feather mugs, makes me think of coffee mugs. I've never tried sgraffito, maybe I will this semester in class and your doily bowls are so classy! I also like your winter tree mugs  Cheesy

Thank you! I learned how to throw pottery in college. I took a few semesters of ceramics and I just loved it. But then I took a break for about 10 years and I didn't get serious about it again until last fall. I found an awesome ceramics studio in town and I started taking classes and I fell in love with it all over again. Now I rent out studio space from them. Smiley

I absolutely encourage you to try sgraffito! If you like to draw, you'll really enjoy it. Smiley
