Below are pots which were fired July 6, 2022. They are stoneware fired to ^6

The impressions were made with carved wooden blocks 
from India-whose intended use was to print designs on fabric.

This is what I call a "Birthday bowl" for my youngest 
great grandchild. 

about 8 in. diameter

8 and 1/2 in wide

a tiny pitcher, about 3 in. high

These range in height from 5 to 7 inches.

spoon rests

Had some fun carving designs on these mugs. Then stain
 was added, and wiped off.

Below are pots from a ^6 firing on March 30, 2022.

                                      9.5" diam.

  • I'm posting a failure too!...big disappointment!                                       I think it was a shrinkage discrepancy problem.                     

                      10" diam. I tried a fluxing wash on this one.           

                9" diam.

                 6" high                                

                  7" soup/salad bowls for our kitchen                       

              a new bowl for Lucy, a Lhasa Apso                                

          a "Birthday bowl" for my oldest granddaughter;
          her older brother has a similar one                           

                                     8" in diameter  

10" diam...I don't think I've done this exact shape before, but I will now.

  1. Below are photos of pottery I've made since I moved from California to Oregon in May of 2018.   It's been over a year since I posted pictures of my studio and the first firing.  A lot of things have put this on the back burner: several car trips, and I had a number of short stays in the hospital.  I have been doing quite well since the end of July.
