Arts and Crafts

This weekend I will be participating in another wood firing. In my class we were asked to replicate a pot of our choosing found in a stack of postcards. I chose the flask pictured above.

As you can see, my go at it is a bit off. (When I say a bit, I mean way.) However, she did say that we had to make it our own and that we weren't supposed to simply copy it exactly. Phew. After I took this photo, I applied some black iron oxide and a green cone ten glaze. I'll take a photo of it before we load it to be fired.

If you happen to run into a clay god this weekend, please ask it to be kind to my pots.

It's a very interesting shape. I think the words "my interpretation of this..." pretty much takes care of any differences :-)
