More to come but this was my favorite from this firing, a bowl with my new pedestal design. I had to go to the library to post because I can't sign into Google Chrome at home and can't access my blog. So I won't be able to respond to comments till my computer guy comes over tomorrow morning. This post is part of Mud Colony weekly studio sharing, so please click the link to see what others are up to in their studios. Please look at my next two blog posts for other work I have just gotten out of the kiln. Thanks for stopping by and for all your comments.


  1. I won't be able to respond to comments till tomorrow due to computer problems, sorry.

  2. It's said how computer problems can stop so much of our lives. I hope you do get to see this comment, I think the piece is beautiful.

  3. Hi Linda-
    The bowl came out nice. Is it glazed inside (and/or outside?) The handles seem to flow even better now that you have finished the firing. It follows the path of the swirly agate-ware beautifully. Hope all is well with your computer. Watch it get better when the computer guy comes to look at it. Kind of like going to the doctor for a nagging cough and then stop coughing in the office!

  4. Fun bowl.
    My son is our computer guy. He can be handy to have around at times.

  5. Hello Linda:
    The bowl is extremely attractive. The colours are subtle and work together very well. It all has a wonderfully calming effect just like waves lapping on the seashore.

    We do so hope that your computer woes will be sorted soon. They are so irritating.

  6. YES! It feels like wave and sand. Is it glazed it looks almost like colored clay.

    My electricity was out for 3 hrs. yesterday....made the great realization that most of my phone nos. are on my email accounts. Sometimes paper is useful!

    BTW the custard looks enticing!

  7. This is overlapped glaze not agate ware, I took a risk and it paid off.

  9. Hi Lori, thanks, I found out I can comment on my own blog and others, but just can't post with internet explorer, not sure why blogger changed that I guess to force folks to use chrome. thanks about the bowl.

    Hi Charlene, thanks, the handles do look much better now that it is fired. It is glazed with two different glazes, but it does look like marbled clay. Yeah hope this old thing works better afterwards.

    Hi Melissa, thanks, I wish I knew someone around here that was hand with the computer.

    Hi Jane and Lance, thanks, that's just what I was thinking of the bowl after I saw what it looked like after firing.

    Hi Suzi, thanks, yes it is glazed. When I glazed it it even looked like colored clay, marbeled. yes we do depend upon the computer for too much I think. In summer we have frequent lacks of electricity and our phone and computer connection are the same company so we can't call them to let them know. Our pay as you go phone doesn't get out that well either.

  10. Funny when I went to the library yesterday to post, their computer wasn't much better than mine is now Ha.

  11. I love the pedestal bowl has a very spontaneous feel to it.

  12. Hi Julia, thanks, it was a spontaneously made piece, so glad you get that feel from it. Whenever I let myself experiment is when I get the best pieces instead of over thinking the process. I have several others I made which are nice too, but this one really worked the best in shape and glazes. I'm taking a bunch of photos now, more to come.


I love suggestions, questions, critiques, thanks for your comment
