The first flower bloomed and went away. Now I have three more on the way in my faceted planter. Hoot Hoot.

My favorite thing about this photo is seeing the original negative he took and the composition he achieved by cropping out the rest.

Bowls made with brown clay glazed with matte and glossy white glaze. Heavy iron content creates the specks in the glaze. Bottom is unglazed.

I had a time sensitive project due and since I was rushing everything I decided to make three pieces in the hopes that one would turn out ok. Because even when you’re not rushing something inevitably goes awry. So what happened? The frog container with the celadon glaze stuck together and I couldn’t get the lid off. It broke when it finally separated. The frog handle came out exactly as I wanted of course but it was useless as a container.

The frog container with the turquoise glaze the sculpted frog completely cracked in two. The rest of the piece came out well of course. It was a great container but the main focal point was ruined.

I got one good container which is in my previous posts.

So… when I’m rushing 1 out of 3 is likely my success rate.

Really? *sigh*
