Lovely forms, Mark. Matte ash sounds perfect, too. I was reading an older post about your gas kiln and results. I get excited when such a simple experience and kiln ends with such gems. You have inspired me!
Thank you, Charlene. Glad you enjoyed the gas kiln post, I find it exciting too, that I can build an experimental kiln in a day..my only problem is having a couple of fine days to do it outdoors!
Lovely shapes.B&W photos fit to your works. : )
Thank you, Midori, I always think raw clay looks nice in B&W, especially when it's fresh on the wheel :)
Superb shot of beautiful shapes, Mark. Hope, now these are fired and glazed ?... I must read all your posts of this summer :D
Thanks so much, Ilona. Not yet fired, I have quite a back-log of bisqued ware to be fired..a couple of them will be wood fired in October, hopefully. :)
