Work from May and June is finally starting to trickle out! The chrome green slip experiments yielded some nice texture and transparency in this series of tea cups…

Vases…

And cafe au lait bowls.

Here are some salve jars with my newest Tree Medicine, a black drawing salve made with activated charcoal and herbs from my garden.

I am working in a dark red clay called Navajo now. It has been very hot and I’ve been careful to let things dry very slowly so nothing cracks in process. I may continue some of the same experiments over the dark clay. The possibilities are limitless, and I’m trying to avoid over-thinking everything. It’s fun to be detached and just try somethings new. Sometimes a form you really like can be ruined by a poor choice of glaze but it’s worth it each time an unexpected treasure comes out of the kiln.
