"The chief source of art is man's pleasure in his daily work, which expresses itself and is embodied in that art itself."

Kiln Firing 11/14/09

Sometimes the kiln is just filled with special pieces. This kiln firing was one of those. Just look at these wonderful pots. The pedestal made it! I'll post some more photos of Steve making and glazing that piece. To give you a better idea of the accomplishment, I should mention that the finished pedestal measures 20 1/2" high and 12" wide. The bowl pictured actually is not the one he made for it but another darker one we have. The bowl in the kiln firing tonight is glazed similarly.
The next piece is beautiful as well. It is close to an original Teco design. At 17 1/2" high it is quite large too.

and this is the lotus I was making in an earlier post.
