More carved

As you can see from this blog, it is my thing to carve on most everything I make. For some reason, plain and simple just doesn't do it for me when it comes to pottery.

Tea Set

I also enjoy making teapots and matching mugs or cups. This is an assignment for my pottery students and they generally end up with something very nice. This particular pot will hold water for two cups of tea.

Coffee Urn

This was actually the very first piece I made with appendages. I like the antique look and I was very happy with the way it turned out.

Slab Boxes

I've made several slab pieces, particularly the slab boxes. I really enjoy the process of both the slab work and the carving.
