She was happy with her pots this morning, and I was happy with most of mine. I've still got problems to work out. More about that in another post, I guess.
Meanwhile, another dozen or so big teabowls came out of this firing, layered in Shinos, ash celadon, copper red and Oribe. The faceting of the pots early in the throwing process, then the pushing out of the bowl shape torques the walls, thins them, sometimes breaks them mid-wall or at the rim. I patch these pots and get on with it. They're going to remain rough and imprecise right through the glaze firing, so I'm not concerned with symmetry or exactitude. Good thing.
There were also, as you can see, some simple squared vases with added lugs, glazed more or less as I glaze the teabowls.
