I did a glaze firing a few days ago, so here are the results: The pot below is 13" tall. I need to think of a name for it, as I will enter it in a show tomorrow. That would be the Cypress Gallery Spring Show, a judged show. The bowl is about 9" in diameter.
I like the top view of this pitcher.
I got a fair iron red on this pitcher, but still not quite what I was hoping for.
These were made for the local Empty Bowls charity event.
Six porcelain cups. I made them quite thin and light....good thing, as they hold 12 oz. Not sure why I made them so large. My favorite cup for coffee only holds 8 oz.
Fun arranging cups...
These are 4" plates, for dipping sauces, or ? I like 3 of them, the other two not so much.
The impressions on the larger bowl are made by using the edge of a peach pit.

This is an earthenware pot, with base, that I fired last fall. Actually had to refire it because the black stain was uneven and streaky. The reddish area is bare clay, waxed before glazing. It is 13 inches high overall. Here is the other side...

Here are a few high fired stoneware pots from last fall. They were in with some larger pieces which I photographed and posted earlier.
