Here’s a new take on an old form. A little more elegant, and little more lyrical…perhaps. Just a little different. Sending this one over to my gallery on the Oregon coast, Touchstone Gallery. $75
These vessels are a new twist on some of my tried and true forms. The bright orange glaze comes from a helmer shino that really makes the sage green glaze stand out. While I get more control than if I’d woodfired these, the shino is still very picky about the amount of reduction it gets when I’m firing these, so still more to learn with it.
These cups were made to feel good in the hand, with little indentations and places for your fingers to fondle as you sip from them. Red wine or gin are my beverages of choice, but they’ll work well with any hot or cold drink you wish to sip.
They also make a nice cup for a bathroom counter or vase for a short stemmed bouquet.
Each cup holds about 6 oz.
3-3/4″ tall by 3″ diameter at the mouth.
“Ice Queen” was woodfired at Digger Mtn Anagama Kiln in the Oregon Coast Range. Decoration on this piece came from wood ash flying through the kiln over several days of stoking wood. One of my favorites out of the kiln. Its subtle ash markings are quiet and not as dramatic as I’d hoped, but seem to fit its gently twisting feminine form just perfectly.

Light Sage/Blue Creamer
This small pitcher with sage blue/green glaze will be happy to sit on your table and pour cream, soy sauce or syrup. It was cut out from one piece of clay and fit together on the back seam. The spiral decoration on both sides serves as the handle grips, meaning there is no pesky handle to try and fit into the dishwasher.
Looks lovely as a small vase for short stem posies, too.
Food safe glaze of course.
5″ tall x 4″ x 3.5″
