Nested clay bowls

Image3 clay bowls, with different glazes. The bottom bowl is the “cauldron” — a hand-built pinch bowl with handles on either side. I glazed it with 1 coat temoku and at least 1 coat of haystack yellow. The middle bowl is the best of the lot. It was hand thrown, with a good wheel cut base. I painted that one with green slip hatch marks, and then later glazed it with a orange-white shino layer, followed by a covering of mint green over it. The smallest bowl was painted with black slip at the base (easier to see in the Flickr photos on the right, then Chun’s blue inside and on the lip, followed by shaner clear on the outside and a bit of the inside.

The Gardener was willing to be a hand model, and helped me set up a bit of old cement paving for photography. The neighbors probably have stopped looking out their windows and wondering what’s happening in our yard, after years of me crawling in it to get pictures of flowers.
