Akira Satake began day two of our workshop with a demonstration trimming the foot on the tea bowl and chawan.
John of JBF Times is going to fire my pieces in the gas kiln for me, leaving the exterior natural and using shino glaze on the interiors. Don't fire that box for at least six months John. Ha.
Akira Satake and Clayworks for a wonderful weekend.
While in Charlotte, I stayed at 803 Elizabeth Lane Bed and Breakfast. The Bed and Breakfast is in Matthews about seven miles from Clayworks. Martha and Will Krauss, the inn hosts, graciously accommodated my gluten free diet with delicious breakfasts. Check out their recipe page for breakfast quinoa. During my stay we shared conversations on travel, art, pottery, cooking, and gardening.
The mug in the top photo, with a shino liner, came home with me. This post is part of Sunday Ceramics. Thanks for reading and for all your comments.
