Ok well not that Potter, put your glasses and wands away.

I have been taking pottery class for almost a year now and I thought I would share my current project.

Running out of places to store your umbrellas? Parasols running amok in your home? Want to avoid bad luck and keep your umbrellas closed? I give you a custom umbrella stand...

I have been working on this large coil pot for close to 4 months now (although I had to take a 2 month break due to travel restrictions) and have for the past 2 weeks finally been able to start carving the reliefs. The good news is that I get to take a break from The Road go carve some more tonight! I hope to finish this side and start the 2nd relief. Should only take about another month...I hope.

I have been going back and forth about glazing and have come to the conclusion that i am not going to glaze and do more with textures. It is hard to see in the photo but I am really working on layering different textures into the clay. Also I am going to try a burnishing technique on the uncarved portions. So I am going to fire it with a clear glaze. It will be a lovely terra cotta when completed.
