I am enjoying throwing bowls and cups lately. They allow for a lot of experimentation without trying it on something big. They are still challenging. You have to consider how they are going to be used. Does it fit into your hand? How will the lip be treated? etc. I got two pieces juried into the third biennial of contemporary clay at the western Colorado art center. Now I have to figure out how to ship a 18 inch platter. Should be interesting.

Here are a few things that are in progress. I have had a couple of good firings. Trying out some new glazes and they are coming out pretty nice. After a couple months struggling to make things I am finally getting into a rhythm. I'm not to worried about making things functional. I just make what makes me happy. In my work I'm trying to figure out how to utilize the clay surface. I've been making marks and altering the form so when the glaze interacts with the marks it changes the flow and color of the glaze. I'll be taking some images of finish work soon and I'll post.
