Pots from the past…

Salt Fired- cone 1; C.2002

I’ve got pots cooling down and pots waiting to go in.  I’ll try to snap some preveiw pics this evening.  In the mean time I realized that I’m not seeing any pots on this blog so here is an archival image.

I made this jar while a resident artist at the Carbondale Clay Center shortly after I moved to town.  I was playing with low-fire salt on a red sandy clay – putting a bunch of soda ash in my white slip which was hell on my brushes, but good for the pots.   With our new salt kiln at SAW, I’m thinking of getting back to this kind of work come spring.

    I’m loving that jar! I’m planning on getting some earthenware into the salt kiln as soon as I get up the nerve to make enough to sacrifice.

    The image under the stripes looks mysterious. Kind of like a fish…
    Sweet pot.
