Pinching and Slipping

Fooling around with pinching and slipping again today. We finally had a good soaking rain of more than two inches and last night I noticed there were lots of fireflies out.

I've used Florida clay slip and porcelain slip on these first two. I've made these really thin consequently this one tore apart on one side so I left it that way.

I'm using black and chartreuse slip on the next two. I decided to put a surprise in the bottom of each of these two bowls.

Back to work for me. Thanks for reading and for all your comments.


  1. Very fun! We had a great showing of fire flies recently as well~ hypnotizing!!

  2. These are great pieces Linda - your slip application really adds to the movement on that first cup. And I love the black & yellow marks on the bowl -- and the surprises in the bowls :-)

  3. Linda- you are having fun again!

  4. Very nice. I like the free feel of the slip designs.

  5. Hi Michele, thanks so much.

    Hi Kathy, thanks, I remember visiting my grandmother in Arkansas when I was a kid and we saw so many fireflies the sky was filled with them.

    Hi Judy, thanks for your encouragement.

    Hi Meredith, thanks, yes clay is definitely a lot fo fun.

    Hi Anna, thanks ever so much.

  6. These designs are fab and I especially like the black and chartreuse. Gorgeous! Glad you finally got some rain!

  7. Love your work. Interesting lines and curves. We've had tons of rain lately.

  8. Hi Marguerite, thanks so much; I hope we get more rain, we are in a drought now.
