Anyway here are the pics:
So here are a couple of pics of the teapot. No matter how many faults I can nit-pick at it is still a good, functional, fun pot. I guess I shouldn't be so hard on myself, still it is better to aim high than to be happy with failure (isn't it?).
Next is the 5kg vase from one of my videos. I used my oxide mix on the outside of this (partially burnished at the top and bottom) and a 7.5% iron oxide clear base glaze for the inside. As I wrote earlier I am happy with this. I think the combination of the matt outside and dark glazed interior work well.
HAPPY CHRISTMAS!Why is there a bird on this potter's blog? After taking the previous pictures I walked past my aviary and one of my Bourkes Parakeets was whistling at and watching me, so he got his picture here too. He's looking a bit cold but he has a heater in the inside flight so it's his choice to be out. He likes the fact that there is lots of greens, fruit and millet outside. He's the closest I have to a picture of a robin so you'll just have to use your imagination and believe it is a Christmas pic.
This will be my last post this week so I would like to wish you a very happy Christmas and I hope Santa brings you everything you want, or at least everything you need! Oh, and if you don't celebrate Christmas I send you season's greetings and I hope you enjoy the day off!
Thanks for visiting.
