Stoneware is such a different animal compared to the porcelain! I had some of the mugs on the window sill after they came out of the kiln. A few gals walked by and decided they had to have them. A few other gals stopped in and 20 mugs are gone along with most of the vases, plus I have orders for 3 dozen of the robin egg blue. If this keeps up I'll be hurting for festival pieces and paintings. So.. must throw/paint faster. ;)

These are a few of my porcelain dishes fresh out of the kiln. Have to get a supply started for festivals and these are the first of the year. Cups and mugs are going in the kiln this week!
I must say that throwing pots is addictive. In an odd way it really is so much like painting. The use of interesting shape and color harmony really sums up how a painting presents itself to the viewer. I think the only difference between the two is that I don't agonize over the pottery like I do the painting.
I've started mixing some of my own glazes. There was a lot of trial and error with this batch. Most turned out great, but now I have to pick which glazes I like the best. Trouble is.. Well.. I like them all!
