Extreme sentimental properties but is meant to be cherished by a very appreciative patron. I'd love for you to have this pot but it will take a great deal of dedication to the appreciation of uniqueness and humbleness. (except for the price)
I think this bowl sold right away, but if I am encouraged, I will do more with this style of adventuresome brush stroking. It's always a gamble, but may do another series; so if you like brushwork, let me know. I really enjoy doing it.
Glazed saggar vase
This is one of the most radical copper lusters I've ever gotten. It was given to my son since he was the one who bought me the glaze to begin with. I'll keep trying to get more of this result, but don't hold your breath. If you're interested you might get on my waiting list. They'll be highly prized. If I start making a bunch of them, this good, I'll stop making them. Always want to try new stuff.
Horse hair decorated pottery that I make will always be hand burnished green ware and bisque-fired before decoration firing. After the decoration ritual, and they are cooled, I usually oil or polish them with mink or beeswax/oil solution to enrich the luster and water proof the pot. If you get one of these, they'll do fine indoors, but still should be oiled once a year or so.
Medicine bowl ("bowls.")
This series of medicine bowls is shown on my FFCP site on the Saggar page.
These pots were some of the first medicine bowls I've made. They were well received and have encouraged me to make more now and then.
These bowls were fired inside the larger thrown pot that had another pot placed on top of it to fire. The materials used for reduction were the athol, or salt cedar needles from the Mojave desert and some trail horse droppings to give it some of the dramatic dark metallic grays.
The medicine is activated by the actuation of the person who acquires the bowl. I just make the bowls, I don't make the medicine.
This Raku pot was made many years ago and sat on the shelf in my garage un-fired. When I pulled it off the shelf one summer, it had hosted a mud-dauber nest. I waited for whatever process the gestation requires and then bisque fired the pot as is. It has gone through many adventures one of which was being used as a lid on a saggar during firing. But, I just decided to glaze and fire it recently. The crack goes almost all the way through, however, at this writing, it is still in one piece. I plan to fuse it to a wooden block base using beeswax just to keep it in one piece, for awhile at least.
I found a dead lizard in the leather state. It was placed in this old native-clay, pit fired, pinch pot to protect it from further decay. Its now been many years and other forms of decay are taking over.
