A huge THANK YOU to @lindsayklix!! I am absolutely in love with your pottery bowls! They fit in perfectly with our farmhouse kitchen, I just love them!! And the gratitude button... Love it! Made me cry. 💕 We just returned from picking up our two year-old boxer, who spent the past nine days in the hospital. Feeling so much gratitude at the moment. Thanks so much Lindsay! ❤️ Friends, go check out her website, offyourrocker.com. #pottery#potterybowls#offyourrockerpottery#gratitude#grateful#farmhouse#farmhousedecor

So nice to be featured on chefstalk again! They just never credit small potters like me, unless I pay hahaha what? Charge the people who are clearly making the least amount of money. #what#pottery#foodphotography#foodie
#throwbackthursday to 1946. Bauer Pottery for Russel Wright. This stunning piece is from the Iroquois Casual China Collection. The Iroquois Carafe. Slightly ahead of its time wouldn’t you say?Russel Wright, The Godfather to the Mid-Century movement.
Estos bocetos son demasiado boceto 🤭
les comparto un poco de lo que hago antes de moldear las macetas personalizadas:
1. Preguntar acerca de cómo es que vas a necesitar que sea tu Natrioskapot que detalles te gustaría que tuvieran. Si es para un regalo me baso siempre en los interesas y unas de las mejores formas sería stalkear un poco 🤭
2. Bocelar las partes más importantes como relieves o partes sobresalientes, así como algún detalle para que al momento de pintar todo tenga su lugar.
3. Después ya viene todo! Ya sabes moldear, esperar el tiempo de secado y luego mi parte favorita pintar y agregar mil detalles.
4. Me tocar poner mi otra parte favorita, tu hermosa planta si es que la quieres con planta.
5. Después la entrega de la emoción 🤩
Todas son mis partes favoritas 🤔😅😛 Espero esto sea normal.
Mud belles! Haven’t had these babies on my feed for a while. I’m usually frantically stringing them up as soon as they’re out of the kiln, prepping them for shipping and then shipping them off. I go ‘oh darn, forgot to photograph them!’ Every. Single. Time. 🙄 Same goes with a lot of my stuff but it’s one of those things you just gotta let go and remember, you can’t do everything - relax! These are heading to @commune_bondi 💕. I have a few belles left which I will list in Etsy this weekend ✌🏽
Dark green bowls, thrown with a smooth reduction stoneware clay body and coated with an ice crackle glaze that contains red iron oxide that changes colour from a white to an almost emerald green that breaks to a rich brown on the sharp rim beneath. The strength of the reduction when firing does play a part in how intense the colour is, crash cooling helps too. I prefer highly reduced pieces, not only for the colour but there are far more iron speckles when it’s stronger. I’ve tried using clay bodies with more iron in, some almost entirely black that fire a deep brown and the affect on the glaze is quite brilliant, the change it undergoes is massive and you might think a completely different glaze was used.
I had a firing somewhat recently where lots of rust from the inside of the kiln door brushed off into a bowl without my noticing, when I unpacked I immediately noticed one piece that had a spattering of iron blossoms, that were far more molten that usual. Part of the joy of them normally is that they occur completely arbitrarily, a result of the kilns reduction, yet it was stunning. I suppose that’s why I like firing with gas, it isn’t only for the greater breadth of glazes and surfaces but for the seemingly strange things that take place when using flames as opposed to hot air.
