So much life death grief and healing has happened since I last posted. Here are some of the pieces I have been working on. New experiments using slips, stencils, and carving have yielded mixed results. The sample tiles were just not at all accurate in terms of colour! But as always the process of making these things is so much more than the object itself. And after I let go of my initial vision and expectations I can appreciate them. I want to apply this to my entire life!

The cup on the left has chrome green slip and white glaze, the middle one has white slip and one coat of turquoise glaze, and the one on the left has chrome green slip and 2 coats of turquoise glaze. 

The bowl on the left has black slip and one coat of white glaze, the one on the right has black slip and two coats of white glaze. I decided that the mossy green-grey of the chrome green/white combination might work well on this French butter dish. I recently started to make my own butter and it seemed like the next step would be to make a cool butter dish. This is a trend with me that started with making containers for my own fermented veg and wildcrafted herbal salves…
