Oct. 24, 06 earthenware firing: About 7 in. high.

This compote has a 2 inch long firing crack on the inside bottom. Must have had opposing tension where the foot attached. It's a keeper (that means I keep it instead of sell it)

The plate above had pink flowers. They burned away and only the outlining stayed.

Here is a BUG which showed up the other night on our front porch: It is about an inch and a half long. It's a Jerusalum beetle-don't know it's scientific name. Nice color, eh?

Stoneware pots from a September 06 firing:

This little vase is 8" high. It got an "Honorable Mention" in the Fall Show at the Cypress Gallery in Lompoc.
The yellow rose bowl is about 5" across. I combined a high rutile cone 10 glaze with a yellow cone 6-8 glaze and got nice vivid color. Will use this again. These are about 9 and a half inches in diameter, 5 and a half high.
The tray is 17" in length. It has thrown feet, about 1 " high.
Another in my favorite glaze, about 6" diam.
A little over 10" diameter, and about 6 inches high
About 10 diameter. ..and 6 high
