Oval Bottle w/ blue and Yellow Stripes

Oval Bottle w/ Blue and yellow Stripes...
12in.H x 12in.W
White Earthenware cone/04

this one in a different direction
directly out of a summer, long ago,
spent making simple pots with lots of stripes
the Creamy crackle mutes the color significantly
the yellow is barely discernible
yet in good light shows through
looks old, like milk paint
providing nice contrast with the red earthenware and its richer tonalities...
continuing to explore ideas contrary to my wood kiln work
as I reach for survivability...

Ochre Small Shot Cup

Small Shot Cup
3.25in.H x 3in.W
Earthenware Cone 03
a nice resolution for me of the foot glaze issue
and the feel in the hand with continuity there...
though I'll be back to wadding them all
and using shells...
more time, but a small price to pay for a good result...
I always try to keep it simple
it just never seems to stay that way...
