This vase is 6 inches high. You can see how it was made.
This cachepot is about 9" in diameter. I am going to refire this one, waxing the flowers and leaves, and pouring a lighter glaze over the exterior of the pot, to get some contrast. The new turquoise glaze I mixed up turned out stronger colored than I expected. All it needs is some more opacifier, which I will add to the whole batch. It is a bit more transparent than looks good on earthenware. You'll see this pot transformed after the next firing.
These vases are just under 9 inches tall. The impressions on two of them were made with the edge of a peach pit. The vase on the right is made of a clay from New Mexico given to me by a friend. It has sparkles you can see on the bare clay.
This pair of vases is made from the New Mexico clay too. I want these two to stay together- hope some buyer agrees.
These two pots are of a fine-textured earthenware from Laguna, which I've used the last few years since I haven't been able to get the local clay from the river banks near here. However, when we took off in our plane last Saturday, I looked down (the runway is next to the river) and could see the typical cracked pattern of clay where the water had receded. So I'll go down there and take a look and maybe stock up again.
