Trying a platter ....

Thought I would try my hand at a platter as a Christmas gift for a friend.  She owns the local Mexican restuarant.  Hope this doesn't warp out of shape!

Tried to copy the text from her logo on her website: Carmensguam.com .

Two more days and I will have pics up of more face mugs, and some boxes, maybe even a couple of plates!
Hopefully this platter will be glazed as well....

Face mugs!

We have finished most of the face mugs, and a few are even glazed.









Now we are working on our boxes.






Mr Young told us to "think outside the box" for our design ideas.
We took pictures of Mr Young's box too!












Have a great long weekend!

Medallions

Made 500 of these 2.5" medallions for the Japanese Club at the school. They gave them out as gifts to the Japanese students who visited last week. I'll be making about 1000 more in the next month. Fun!






They liked even better when glazed, but I was in such a hurry to get them packed up, I didn't remember to get any pictures. I'll make sure to get pics of the next batch!
Happy Mudding!

A Covered Jar

The students are keeping busy enough for me to get a little work done as well. Today I finished up this slab jar with a turned lid. Think it turned out ok.












Happy Mudding!

Frustration!

One half of the load turned out great!


The other half overfired!



Thirty pieces I can't sell...
This kiln is driving me crazy!

Two more mugs!

A couple more that were finished on Friday...






And this one got extra credit! There is an opening on the back side to put your cookie/scone/biscuit in! It cuts the volume of the cup in half, but it's an interesting design. She patterned it after a cookie monster mug she saw online while researching face mugs. :-)









Great mug!

More Glazing, and Face Mugs!

Prepped some more pieces for glazing...






Got started on this set of four yunomi.



The first one done! Not bad at all!





By far the best one yet!





I think this batch of mugs will be great!
