New range of pots

I'm obsessed with rounded pots where I bring the opening back in when I'm throwing. And I'm also hooked on the uncoloured look where only clear glaze is used.
Expect more in this range. Shall we call it a "collection"?
Something else I tried out recently was stamping into the clay and painting the underglaze onto the stamped images. Very slow process as I have shaky hands. Cute though.
An example of the "denim" matt glaze. I'm really liking the way touches of green show through the blue.
And I like the way the rim colour "bled" into the main glaze on this pot.


  1. oooh, I really like the first vase Caroline - with the petals/teardrops.
    Can't wait to see how you build your collection :)

  2. Thanks Rachel! The others at the pottery group thought they were feathers since I'm always making bird related things. :)

  3. I like your 'collection' :) those yellow flowers? add a nice bright lift.

  4. Oh yes, call it a collection! I wasn't sure how to contact you, maybe this will work! Vista print is having a 50% off sale today so if you want to participate in the pottery cards promotion activity you need to get a photo file of your best pottery to me today Friday 28/11/14. Sale on until midnight tonight and I would like us to get on with some fundraising. CAN YOU HELP? One of your birds or chooks would be fantastic.

  5. I've tried the baby owl and it looks good but the other one I really think would make a good card is the two bird on the bowl. The light is just right for a water illusion but the file I tried to lift from your blog is too small, can you email me the file? Send me the flower bowl as well.
