Here is my solution to the problem I created for myself by attaching handles to my baskets before trimming the bottoms....the thin slabs of clay on the bricks protect the rim of the pot, and keep it from sliding. Later I added small dabs of clay at the bottom edge.

The following 8 pictures are of pots from my latest glaze firing, on Sunday August 2, 2009. These little bottles are a commission; they will hold about 4 oz. of fruit-enhanced rum....a nice little Christmas present, eh? I made a few extra ones.

This platter is almost 14" in diameter. It was singlefired, everything brushed on, and it worked better than the other times I've tried it.
I made these potatoes because I have a glaze that I knew would work. They are wheel-thrown, and have a jingle inside.

Next time I won't have them on the bottom of the kiln where it's a bit hotter, to avoid that slight sheen. Well, my mother in law used to rub her baking potatoes with oil before baking, so we'll say that's what happened here!
A seven inch wide celedon bowl.

...a 12 inch plate, and bowl with the same glaze.

These were an order too-they are 8" wide individual chip 'n dips.
