All it takes is a single fired pot that comes out of the kiln just right and the next thing you know there are three boards full of similar shapes, drying in the studio.
Such was the case with the faceted Shino teabowl that leads the page two posts down. I wedged crushed granite into the Miller 750 clay body to give it some serious tooth, coned up a vertical shape on the wheel, pushed down into the cone, faceted the resulting thick wall, then pushed out the clay while throwing to torque the facets and push out the granite. The results are very rugged and wonky pots. Glazed with layered Shinos and a celadon ash, the pots have a rough but vaguely structured look to them. The Shinos work perfectly on them, filling some holes, not filling others.
So, I'm off on this group of pots for a while. Just threw three boards of the bowls, as well as several spoon/brush holders yesterday. Another couple of days throwing and I'll be ready to fire again.
